Denman Island author Howard Macdonald Stewart will discuss his new book, Views of the Salish Sea: One Hundred and Fifty Years of Change around the Strait of Georgia (Harbour Publishing, $39.95) at the Museum at Campbell River on Saturday, Feb. 24, 2018 from 1-2:30 p.m.

Views of the Salish Sea is a deft examination of the Strait of Georgia, a sea spanning 300 kilometres from Victoria to Campbell River and supporting over 200 species of fish, 130 species of marine birds, and 16 kinds of marine mammals. Stewart examines this region through a variety of perspectives – as a highway or barrier, waste dump, recreational haven and more – over the past 150 years in an effort to view this region as an interrelated whole, one that we must work to protect if we want to preserve its inherent richness. Views of the Salish Sea has appeared on the BC Bestsellers list since October.

Stewart was born and raised on the shores of the North Salish Sea and has worked for the United Nations, local and national governments, international agencies, communities, NGOs and industries around the world. This book grew out of his PhD thesis in geography at the University of British Columbia. He has contributed to numerous periodicals, and professional and academic publications. He lives on Denman Island.

Admission to the presentation is $7 and it will be followed by a discussion. Books will be available for purchase from the Museum Shop.
