A Review by Laurie Carter, author of Emily Carr’s B.C.

“At first glance the format and dedication of A is for Amphitrite: A Walk on Ucluelet’s Wild Pacific Trail suggest something for children, but this is one of those wonderful books that effortlessly cross the generation gap. While young readers may be most fascinated with “B” for banana slugs and “T” for tidal pools, adults are bound to be interested in “O” for Oyster Jim and “K” for krummholz. Everyone will stop to savour Shirley Martin’s captivating photographs. A is for Amphitrite is a wonderful invitation to explore the natural world of the Wild Pacific Trail and a memorable keepsake if you’ve already made the journey.”
