Description

Beautiful Alberta is a spectacular photographic portrait of Canada's most prosperous province. It reveals the resplendent natural beauty of the West's towering mountains, cerulean lakes, man-made cities and unique architecture that come together in this awe-inspiring slice of the country.

Mike Grandmaison's perceptive eye has captured what makes Alberta special in the 125 exquisite photographs in this handsome collection. With a population of 4.1 million and a land area of 661,848 km2 (255,541 sq mi), Alberta is Canada's fourth-largest province and contains within it distinct and varied topographies, from prairies and badlands, to boreal forests and mountain regions. Alberta's urban areas are no less impressive with portraits of Calgary, Edmonton and Fort McMurray. Renowned for its natural tourist attractions, its towns such as Banff, Canmore, Drumheller and Jasper accommodate legions of visitors throughout the year.

Alberta is home to a range of animals, including bison, grizzly and black bears, big horn sheep and mountain goats. The abundance of flora and fauna within Alberta's borders contrasts with the vast industrial tracts devoted to extracting and processing oil, which is the province's economic lifeblood. The photographs presented in Beautiful Alberta will inspire readers to explore this varied and interesting part of Canada.
