Birds of the Raincoast: Habits and Habitat
(Co-authored by Harvey Thommasen and Kevin Hutchings.) Madeira Park, BC: Harbour Publishing, 2004.
When it was first published, this book spent several weeks on the British Columbia Bestseller List; and it was later awarded a British Columbia Book Prize, edging out other short-listed books by the likes of David Suzuki and Douglas Coupland. The book takes a habitat-oriented approach to its subject matter, examining birds in relation to estuary and river environments, old- and second-growth forestlands, alpine and subalpine coastal mountain terrains, and fields and farmlands. Spiced with references to Romantic poetry, Birds of the Raincoast has been called “a book that takes flight” (Vancouver Sun).
