Stretching along the BC coast from Vancouver Island’s northern tip to the Alaska panhandle, the Great Bear Rainforest represents 25 percent of the world’s remaining ancient coastal temperate rainforests. Home to more than 230 species of birds and 68 species of mammals, it’s the largest intact temperate rainforest left anywhere on Earth.
The Great Bear Sea is a the newest juvenile nonfiction title from Ian McAllister and Nicholas Read that explores the incredible bio diversity of the Great Bear Rainforest. In The Salmon Bears and The Sea Wolves, we met the land-dwellers of this remarkable ecosystem. In The Great Bear Sea, we are taken on an expedition into the wondrous and mysterious underwater world. This amazing part of the northeast Pacific Ocean is home to some of the planet’s mightiest and most beloved residents: great whales, sea lions, dolphins, orcas, sea otters and wild salmon.
What reviewers have been saying about The Great Bear Sea:
*”Its spirit is that of two little boys, roaring around the seashore and calling to each other to see the latest cool thing. A chatty, avuncular style and gift for accessible metaphors…sometimes explode into sheer joy…The enthusiasm is contagious…This is a book to read all the way through, to appreciate the big, amazing picture and serious message.”
-Starred review in Quill & Quire
“As much an invitation to readers to visit this unspoiled area as a description of its wonders, this is a commendable complement to The Sea Wolves and The Salmon Bears.”
– Kirkus Reviews
“Generous quantities of excellent nature photos include engaging close-ups of otter and seal faces, dramatic shots of humpback whales and other finny mammals breaching, and particularly dazzling close-ups of sea stars and other residents of intertidal zones. Along with plenty of eye candy, though, the whole notion that a rainforest ecosystem doesn’t stop at the shoreline makes this particularly valuable for students of ecology and environmental conservation. A handsome, well-designed introduction.”
