Jacqueline Windh's Wild Edge


With this book,” writes photojournalist Jacqueline Windh, “I am sharing with you the mystery and charm of Vancouver Island’s central west coast—from the wild and hidden secrets of the Hesquiaht Peninsula south to the wave-pounded islets at the entrance to Barkley Sound, and from the lofty craggy peaks of the central mountains down the forested slopes to the rugged Pacific shores.“I hope that this book will give you some idea of the complexity and allure of the wild west coast—the savage beauty, its fascinating history, and the people who make their home here… I want to show you the places that you don’t make it to (this time!), and give you greater insight into the places that you do see. And I hope to inspire you to help protect them so that this ancient and venerable land and its traditional inhabitants will be here for all future generations.”

The Pacific Rim region of Vancouver Island—including the Clayoquot wilderness, Long Beach, Barkley Sound and the communities of Tofino, Ucluelet and Port Alberni—has become one of western Canada’s prime tourist destinations, drawing over a million visitors a year. Few are disappointed by what they find, but the region is so vast and rich in natural wonders many have difficulty deciding just how to spend their time and return home with the uncomfortable feeling of having missed some of the main attractions.This beautiful photographic study of the region will go far towards revealing its legendary charms both to actual visitors and armchair travellers.

Jacqueline Windh has spent ten years photographing the Clayoquot–Pacific Rim in all its seasons and moods, studying its history and getting to know its people. In The Wild Edge she shares her findings in images and words, supplementing her unforgettable scenic photographs with a light-hearted but informative text that blends history and science with essential visitor guidance.

Jacqueline Windh is a photojournalist, geologist and outdoorswoman who has published her images and articles in many leading magazines, including BBC Wildlife, Adventure Kayak, WaveLength Paddling Magazine and Beautiful BC. She lives in Tofino, BC.
