A grizzly bear emerges, one small detail in an immense vista of field and mountains and sky. A shoreline, still and empty but for the telltale tracks of passing wildlife. Golden peaks that roll to the horizon, starkly beautiful in the morning light. This kind of space, of solitude-of simple wildness-still exists in North America, outside the boundaries of any park.

Photographer Florian Schulz documents the landscape, plants, animals, and people of an eco-system that is surprisingly intact up and down the spine of the Rocky Mountains-but for how long? There is still time to make a difference: to direct the path of encroaching development and establish connections between the national and provincial parks on this course.

Essayists tell of their travels through the region and their experience of the land. They explain the need for Y2Y, based on new findings that reveal that isolated nature sanctuaries are a recipe for wildlife extinction.

Since the release of the hardcover edition, FLORIAN SCHULZ has delivered dozens of lectures throughout North America. His photographs and stories have appeared in more than thirty major magazines and newspapers, reaching more than three million readers. His photographs of the Yellowstone to Yukon region are currently the subject of museum exhibitions.
