"Great Bear Wild is an urgent, eloquent call-to-arms from the heart of the BC coast that pays tribute to the staggering beauty and diversity of this unique region."
-John Vaillant, author of The Tiger: A True Story of Vengeance and Survival
"McAllister's remarkable photographs from years spent deep in the Great Bear Rainforest give unprecedented access to one of the planet's wildest, most remote places."
-Paul Nicklen, National Geographic photographer
"As Ian McAllister shows in this stunning book, through his photos and compelling narrative, this is a battle that pits apocalupical forces of ignorance and greed against the welfare of our children and the rest of humankind. Great Bear Wild vividly domonstrates the high stakes in this battle."
-Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Senior Attorney, Natural Resources Defense Council
"[Ian McAllister] combines stunning photography of the natural world-lush underwater reefs, Kermode cubs feeding on salmon, spyhopping orcas, preening puffins-with stories from his explorations and perspectives from the indigenous people who have lived here for tens of thousands of years.The result is a convincing testament for a place on the planet largely untouched by the modern world, and a prayer to keep it that way."
"McAllister's book is a jewel of conservation insight and includes some of the most beautiful images of the natural world I have ever seen. I couldn't recommend it more highly to the general public. Anyone who loves and honors the natural world and our place within in should reserve a place for this volume on their bookshelf."
-Duane Niatum, American Book Review
