The Purcell Suite
Edited by K. Linda Kivi
The Purcell Suite is an anthology of twenty-five essays by Canadian and US writers which explores the ecological wonders and beauty of the Purcell Mountains of British Columbia and the USA.

A stunning collection of insightful journeys through an inspiring and diverse landscape. Wade Davis, Author and Anthropologist
The message in this wonderful book, The Purcell Suite, is that the protection of the planet's remaining wilderness, like the Purcell Mountains, is not only a critical ecological imperative but central to our own identity as Canadians". Dr. Faisal Moola, PhD., Director of Science, David Suzuki Foundation
