    Summary:

    An astounding collection of photographs and essays celebrating the grandeur of Canada's most remote regions located along the three ocean coastlines. Divided into three main sections - the Atlantic (Newfoundland and Labrador), the Arctic (Nunavut and The Northwest Passage), and the Pacific (Haida Gwaii and The Great Bear Rainforest) - the book will highlight features of geographical and cultural significance using glorious full-colour photographs and personal reflections written by some of Canada's most honoured writers, including Wade Davis, Ken McGoogan, Terry Fallis, and Douglas Gibson. These stunning photographs and warm-hearted stories will inspire the reader to embark on their own journey to explore places still unfamiliar to them in this vast and magnificent landscape of Canada.
