About this book

Fresh water is a vital part of British Columbia's landscape. Creeks, rivers, lakes, ponds, marshes and bogs not only form the circulatory system of terrestrial life in the province but are also intriguing worlds of life unto themselves.

"I can remember walking through shallow, alkaline ponds as a boy, seeing great schools of fish scatter before me, rippling the surface of the warm waters. But then I discovered that these were not fish but salamanders - Tiger Salamanders, top dogs of the pond world."

Sydney, Richard and Robert Cannings explore in depth the physical and natural diversity of B.C's freshwater habitats.
