Set in the primeval rainforest of coastal British Columbia, End of the Wild follows an unlikely pair in their fight for survival after a shipwreck on a remote island.
Amy and Ian are sailing to Alaska, on the voyage of a lifetime. They share a bond forged by their mutual desire to experience true wilderness, but when a moment of inattention results in their sailboat running up onto the rocks, they are thrown into a world beyond their wildest imagination.
Avoided by the Coast Salish tribes for generations, Hurst Island is one of the last remnants of untracked wilderness on the British Columbia coastal frontier. Not yet overtaken by logging or commercial fishing, it is a final outpost where myth lives on, heedless of human progress or desire. As their boat sinks, Amy and Ian find themselves stranded on this island, unaware of what they are about to face.
Populated by legendary creatures from Coast Salish mythology, End of the Wild will take you on a journey across time and space to discover the limits of human civilization. What happens when we reach the end of nature? What happens when all the wild places disappear from the Earth once and for all?
A sailing adventure. A story of survival after losing everything. Dense and atmospheric. A feast for the senses. Rich in coastal history and legend, End of the Wild will lead you to question the nature of wilderness and what it can mean to the human soul. A memory of a distant and brutal past. A vision of a ruined future. When turning back is impossible and forging ahead means risking everything, where can you turn?
