The wilderness area designation means no mining or logging is allowed, but people are free to hunt, fish, hike, and camp as they have for generations. These Wilderness Areas --from the massive Tobeatic Wilderness Area that covers five counties to tiny McGill Lake-- showcase the best of natural Nova Scotia, and Len Wagg has photographed them all for Wild Nova Scotia.Photos of important areas not designated Wilderness Areas are included as well- like the shores of the Northumberland Strait, where herds of seals find places along the shores to have their young- the Bay of Fundy, where world-class tides erode massive cliffs- Keji National Park, where the sounds campers hear are all natural- and Nova Scotias barren Sable Island, home to birds, plants, seals and a herd of wild horses.Each area has distinctive characteristics that make it unique. Wild Nova Scotia showcases the special places, protected or not, allowing people to bring home some of the amazing natural beauty of this province.
