To Save the Wild Earth: Field notes from the environmental frontline
Ric Careless, 1997, Raincoast Books

A behind-the-scenes glimpse at critical moments in each of nine wilderness campaigns; reveals the kind of strategy needed to achieve environmental victories; gives us personal reminiscences of political leaders such as Prime Minister Jean Chrétien, US Vice President Al Gore, and BC Premier Mike Harcourt whom he encountered along the way; and interweaves his narrative with heartfelt, lyrical appreciations of why protecting wilderness is crucial for the survival of nature and humanity.

"To Save the Wild Earth is Ric Careless' message that ordinary people can act to save the world...He deserves to be proud of what he has done for our children's future - and you can be inspired by his example."
David Brower, Chairman, Earth Island Institute

"Ric Careless has been one of the leaders in a movement that has come in the nick of time to protect and preserve the few remaining bits of our natural heritage."
Robert Bateman

Tatshenshini River Wild 1993, Raincoast Books

Three dozen of some of the continent's best outdoor photographers and over a dozen political and environmental leaders donated their words and images to this beautiful pictorial celebration of North America's Wildest River; all to help with the campaign to protect the Tatshenshini. Amazingly, just as the book was going to press, Premier Harcourt made the decision to create the one million hectare Tatshenshini-Alsek Park - his announcement is included.
