Baker & Taylor A full-color tribute to Canada's natural regions showcases its Arctic lowlands and the Pacific Northwest's dewy rainforests to the stone outcroppings of the Canadian Shield to Newfoundland's icebergs, in a photographic tour that places an emphasis on untouched wilderness areas. Original.
Canada is rich in history and culture, but it’s the country’s natural beauty that makes it unique. Within its borders lie some of the most spectacular vistas and wildlife anywhere. This diverse nation’s blanket of unparalleled beauty unfolds from the sweeping lowlands of the Arctic to the dewy rainforests of the Pacific Northwest to the dramatic stone outcroppings of the Canadian Shield. In this coast-to-coast photographic panorama, Mike Grandmaison presents a country whose seasons are variable and changing, reflecting the many moods of nature in all their glory. Whether it is the sight of an iceberg scudding along Newfoundland’s coast, the ethereal expanse of prairie fields in autumn, or the melancholy beauty of a setting sun behind a mountain range, Grandmaison’s photography captures the essence of a country where much of the wilderness remains untouched. Shelagh Rogers complements the images with a thoughtful introduction on what makes the country so special.
