Tom Parkin of Nanaimo (b. 1951) and Parks Canada naturalist Dennis Horwood co-wrote a natural history guide to the Queen Charlotte Islands entitled Haida Gwaii: Islands of Discovery (Heritage House, 2000). It was republished as Haida Gwaii; The Queen Charlotte Islands (Heritage, 2006). Parkin has also collected uniquely British Columbian words and phrases for a slim and scanty dictionary, WetCoast Words (Orca, 1989), and he prepared an educational book for children, Green Giants, Rainforests of the Pacific Northwest (Earth Care Books, D&M, 1992), having spent ten years working with the national and provincial parks of western Canada.
