A flash of lightning explodes across a summer sky; a sudden
winter storm descends on a tranquil coastal bay; in a moment
of absolute stillness, the surface of a mirror-like lake reflects
the world around it. This is Canada. The Canadian Landscape
is a collection of more than 125 of Kraulis' exquisite photographs.
Each stunning images tells the tale of a vast country and of
a photographer's relationship with it. The text consists of
a concise introduction and short, descriptive captions that
accompany each photograph. The book is organised east to west
by region, covering the Atlantic region and sub Arctic, St.
Lawrence and Great Lakes region, Prairies, Rocky Mountains,
West coast rain forests and Pacific Ocean. The photographs capture
a range of views, from colourful wildflowers growing in the
Rockies to the subtle shades of grey in an aerial view of the
badlands. With only a few exceptions, these photographs portray
vast, uninhabited vistas of exceptional grandeur. The photographer's
challenge is to discover these landscapes at the precise moment
that they transform from scenic to extraordinary. Such images
are found in this book.

Great Bear Rainforest: Canada's Forgotten Coast
Between Vancouver island and Alaska, the mainland BC coast winds
through a 250-mile wonderland of forested islands and inlets
every bit as enchanting as the southern half, but still very
much as nature created it, a wonderfully complex and delicate
rainforest masterpiece ten thousand years in the making. The
area is one of the northern hemisphere's richest unprotected
wildlife habitats, the home of Canada's largest grizzly bears
as well as the rare all-white spirit or Kermode bear. Ian and
Karen McAllister, both environmental campaigners, have spent
over ten years exploring, photographing and researching this
once-forgotten coast. The book contains over 150 stunning colour
photographs, including some of the most extraordinary images
of wild bears ever seen in print, lush river valleys where grizzly
bears feast on salmon, dramatic Coast Range mountaintops, exotic
plants of the ancient rainforest, and some of the most magnificent
coastline in Canada. With these photographs, a personable, informative
commentary by Ian and Karen and environmental writer Cameron
Young, and full-colour maps and drawings, this book is the first
to unveil the beauty and magnificence of this unique place.
