On November 10, two years and three months after the canoes from the Three Rivers Journey touched the banks of the Peel River, CPAWS launched a beautiful and compelling new book -Three Rivers: The Yukon’s Great Boreal Wilderness (Harbour Publishing, 2005. 148 p).
Edited by Juri Peepre and Sarah Locke, this handsome anthology of photography, art images, provocative essays, stories, and poetry celebrates the Three Rivers wilderness at the north end of the Yellowstone to Yukon region, and calls for protection of all three watersheds. Contributions from such notables as Margaret Atwood and John Ralston Saul add to the engaging prose of Three Rivers Journey participants Richard Nelson, Brian Brett, Sarah Locke, Peter Lesniak, Paul McKay and others. The collected photography of Fritz Mueller, Marten Berkman, Courtney Milne, Juri Peepre, Jannik Schou, Paul Nicklen, Peter Mather among others captures the light and essence of the Three Rivers, while the art works of the 8 participating artists portray the mystery of the land and reveal new meaning in the heart of the wild.
