Much more than a useful and informative guide, Cape Breton Highlands National Park gives readers a genuine compaion as respected naturalist and photographer Clarence Barrett shares his devotion to wilderness Cape Breton. A memoir of discovery as well as a history of the contentious founding of the park, this up-dated edition is Barrett’s classic invitation to explore the Cape Breton Highlands National Park. He has walked again and described every trail. Details the birds and whales, animal tracks and scats, geology and flora — and exploring Cape Breton in all weathers. A literary accomplishment and a terrific encouragement to explore Cape Breton’s northern treasure.
