Auction #80 Signed copy of Wild Island by John Sylvester

What can I saw about a photography book that celebrates the best place in Canada? If you can’t live here, having a book that showcases the wilds of PEI will help you get your fix. 🙂

Book description:

Whether it is a long walk down a deserted beach, the discovery of spring wildflowers on the forest floor, or the sight of a bald eagle soaring above his canoe, it is the experience of wild things that brings peace, wonder, and inspiration to John Sylvester’s work and life. Wild Island gathers together fragments of what remains of the “wild things” found on “The Million-Acre Farm,” presenting a picture of Prince Edward Island as Sylvester imagines it might have appeared before permanent settlement.

This is not a guidebook to natural areas, but a portrait of the diversity and beauty of what remains. It is an attempt to save and protect the “wild things” that are left.

Thanks to Acorn Press for the donation.
