Muskwa-Kechika: The Wild Heart of Canada's Northern Rockies
From the Publisher: The Muskwa-Kechika region is located in northern British Columbia at the top of the Yellowstone to Yukon corridor. At one and a half times the size of Switzerland, it is by far the largest remaining wilderness in the Rocky Mountains. It is home to some of the greatest diversity and abundance of wildlife in North America and an inspiring new model for wilderness management. Located in north-central British Columbia, the Muskwa-Kechika is rich in wildlife and wilderness, but also rich in natural resources. More than just a book of remarkable nature photographs, this is also a story about human nature, and how people of divergent interests found common ground, and with understanding and cooperation, agreed to protect an uncommon wilderness forever.
Northerner, one-time logger and trapper, photographer and conservationist Wayne Sawchuk tells his first-hand story of the creation of the Muskwa-Kechika. His adventures both at the bargaining table and deep within this wilderness bring the narrative to life, while over 170 of his photographs reveal with skill and artistry its remarkable landscape and wildlife. This book also features two full-page maps of the Muskwa-Kechika, and detailed photo captions explain the lessons that nature teaches.
