Synopsis: The Cowichan Region is the large area that lies between the cities of Victoria and Nanaimo on Vancouver Island, reaching from the protected eastern shores of the island nearly all the way west to the Pacific Ocean. Its cornucopia-like shape is fitting for a place of such remarkable bounty, and this area is home to a growing number of newcomers seeking its pleasant climate, recreational activities and culinary delights. Sometimes referred to as Canada's Provence, the name Cowichan is derived from a Coast Salish word meaning "warm land" or "basking in the sun."
Celebrating this land of plenty, The Cowichan dishes up a full sampling of delights from one of BC's most fascinating and varied regions. Mountainous wilderness, large lakes and rivers, broad fertile valleys, enormous estuaries and numerous coastal harbours and islets are home to more than a dozen communities, ranging from seaside and lakeside villages to shop-and café-filled towns. Once famous for its fishing and forest resources, the Cowichan region is better known today for its dairy farms and market gardens, vineyards and wineries, alpaca ranches and a rapidly expanding "eat local and organic" culinary food scene.
Author Georgina Montgomery's compelling narrative is beautifully illustrated with photographer Kevin Oke's vibrant images, capturing the beauty of the region.
