Description

A breathtaking photographic portrait of Canadas mountains.The Rocky Mountains contain some of North Americas most stunning landscapes. Geological forces such as wind, water, and glaciers shaped this mountain range into the beautiful expanse we see today. Stretching all the way across Canadas west and extending into the United States, the flora and fauna of the Rocky Mountains is as diverse as it is beautiful. This book captures the heart and soul of the entire Rocky Mountain region in dazzling detail.The Canadian Rockies are one of this countrys most important and best-known natural features. They span western North America, on a north-south axis stretching from Idaho and Montana to northern British Columbia. In Canada, five national parks, Banff, Jasper, Yoho, Kootenay, and Waterton, along with countless provincial parks and forest reserves, endeavour to protect the natural environment of this important biome. Teeming with wildlife, the Rockies are a travel destination for millions of people from all over the world. Celebrated photographer Mike Grandmaison captures the Rockies as no other photographer has done, drawing from a large selection of never-before published images of the mountains, and including grand landscapes and majestic views, more intimate views interspersed with some wildlife and plant life. His spectacular photographs cover the entire geographical area in Canada and include images taken in every season and demonstrating the habitats changing moods.
