Overview

In his words, as in his photographs, Darwin Wiggett shares a profound view of the landscape. From the ethereal water of Rushing River, scrambling over layers of Canadian Shield, to a wintery wall of trees in British Columbia's Manning Provincial Park, this book is a unique combination of colour, light and meaning.

Darwin transports his readers to amazing places still unknown to many Canadians. He reveals the Okanagan pocket desert bursting with life after a spring rain, the Great Sandhills of Saskatchewan rolling into the distance, and the thundering power of Alexandria Falls in the Northwest Territories. Each of these places is simply a few moments' walk from a highway or road, a scene any weekend traveler can discover. Darwin calls this book a sampler - an appetizer to whet your appetite for further exploration.
