"The expert photography in these books is the perfect medium to tell the stories of survival in this unique wild place." —CM Magazine

When storms roar and orcas are on the prowl, it's the seal gardens of the Great Bear Sea that provide safety and shelter to sea lions, otters, a variety of seals and other sea mammals. Ian McAllister's glorious photographs reveal the beauty and mystery of this rarely seen place of refuge.

The Seal Garden is part of the My Great Bear Rainforest series, which includes Wolf Island, A Bear's Life and A Whale's World.
