Artists' Journeys to Save the Tsitika Valley and Robson Bight. This book was produced by the WC Victoria office in 1991 based on the activities in Camp Wolverine in the Tsitika Valley adjacent to Robson Bight. The scientists involved were trying to uncover this area's mysteries before it was too late. The fear of losing this rainforest was shared by a group of people who undertook an art expedition to the Tsitika Valley and Robson Bight. The resulting art was donated to a fundraising art show. With 100 artists participating this book is a documentary of this special artistic expedition.
