Journeys Through Eastern Old-Growth Forests

A narrative guide

  Author:   Jamie Simpson    
  Publisher:  Nimbus Publishing

Yes, there is old-growth forest in the Maritimes. The Acadian Forest, as it is known, is a complex mosaic of various species and ages. Now left only in pockets scattered here and there, these forests will stop you in your tracks, invite your gaze upward, and fill you with wonder. This book begins with a collection of stories about journeys into these old forests, and ends with detailed profiles of 16 of the remaining pockets of old-growth forest in the Maritimes: nine in Nova Scotia, three in New Brunswick, and four in Prince Edward Island. Each site description includes notes on what a visitor can expect to see, and a map and directions showing how to get there. Over 75 colour photographs highlight the incredible beauty and diversity of the region’s forests.
