About this title


An inspiring tribute to a magnificent ecosystem.

The Boreal Forest is the largest single ecosystem on the North American continent and occupies one third of the total landmass of Canada. It is as important to the planet as is the Amazon rain forest. The Boreal Forest is a living, breathing, pollutant-filtering six-million-square-mile forest covering almost 11 percent of the planet's surface, stretching from Newfoundland to Alaska. The forest absorbs and filters a quarter billion gallons of water each day and contains a large portion of Earth's non-frozen fresh water. After sixty-five million years of evolution, this ecosystem is now threatened by development and pollution.

Rendezvous with the Wild is an impassioned celebration of the Boreal Forest and the rivers that run through it. Fifty-four noteworthy contributors from diverse walks of life provide:

  • Art and photography
  • Essays, stories and anecdotes
  • Songs and poems
  • Journal entries and memoirs.

Some contributors express their longtime love of the land. Others tell of their first truly wild encounter with the vast northern woods. The insight of paddlers and philosophers, artists and firefighters, conservationists and forest industry workers, playwrights and scientists will entertain, inform and persuade readers that this vital wilderness needs our attention and protection now.

Published in conjunction with the Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society's "Boreal Rendezvous" project.
