Description

Canada is rich in history and culture, but it's the country's resplendent natural beauty that makes it unique in the world. Within its borders lies some of the most spectacular and photogenic vistas: from the desolate, sweeping lowlands of the arctic, to the dewy rainforests of the Pacific Northwest, to the sloping, worn stone outcroppings of the Canadian Shield, a blanket of unparalleled beauty unfolds.
In this breathtaking coast-to-coast photographic panorama of Canada, Mike Grandmaison presents a portrait of a country whose seasons are variable and changing, reflecting the many moods of nature in all its glory. Broadcaster Shelagh Rogers complements Grandmaison's photography with an introduction to the book that both embraces the country and describes her feelings for a place that defies a simple description.
