Wild Beauty: A Visual Exploration of BC

Front Cover
Heritage House Publishing Co, Oct 1, 2009 - Photography - 128 pages

In this visually stunning, richly informative portrait of British Columbia, renowned photographer Al Harvey takes readers beyond the landmarks of Canada's westernmost province to its equally majestic yet rarely seen corners. Towering granite spires reach skyward in the Bugaboo Mountains. Breezes tickle the alpine tundra of the northern Rockies. Dryas blooms amidst the willows along the shoreline of the Gataga River. On foot, by paddle and from the air, Al Harvey has captured the majesty of British Columbia for all to savour and celebrate. Part travel guide, part geography lesson, Wild Beauty invites long-time residents and adventurous tourists alike to journey to BC's special places.
