Publisher's Summary

Avoided by the Coast Salish tribes for generations, Hurst Island is one of the last remnants of untracked wilderness on the British Columbia coastal frontier. Not yet overtaken by logging or commercial fishing, it is a final outpost where myth lives on, heedless of human progress or desire. As their boat sinks, Amy and Ian find themselves stranded on this island, unaware of what they are about to face.  

Populated by legendary creatures from Coast Salish mythology, End of the Wild will take you on a journey across time and space to discover the limits of human civilization. What happens when we reach the end of nature? What happens when all the wild places disappear from the earth once and for all?  

A sailing adventure. A story of survival after losing everything. Dense and atmospheric. A feast for the senses. Rich in coastal history and legend, End of the Wild will lead you to question the nature of wilderness and what it can mean to the human soul. A memory of a distant and brutal past. A vision of a ruined future. When turning back is impossible and forging ahead means risking everything, where can you turn?

An exciting tale with good morals

I listened to the book mainly during workouts and on long car drive. The characters are well developed and it's easy to picture the islands they traverse. The narrator does a good job with the voices and is effective at setting the mood for each part of the story. It definitely has a relistenablity to it as I feel I missed some things the first time.
