Islands of Hope: Ontario's Parks and Wilderness : Located above the dense population centers of northern Michigan and New York, the province of Ontario hosts vast areas of primal wilderness. Islands of Hope celebrates the preservation of the raw nature of these areas in word and picture. The book features 130 spectacular photographs that capture the spirit and essence of the northern wilderness. The photographs are by such first rate nature photographers as Freeman Patterson and Courtney Milne. Forty-three contributions by writers describe the magic and beauty of specific sites, such as Algonquin Park and Temagami. Other essays detail the efforts to protect the wilderness for future generations. Among the contributing writers are Margaret Atwood, Loraine Monk and Alec Ross.
