9780887769405: A Mountain Alphabet (ABC Our Country)

Mountains are an impressive sight anywhere in the world but those of the western mountain region of North America offer riches that are truly unique. This lavishly illustrated picture book presents snowcapped peaks, emerald lakes, tall pines and magnificent maples, and a range of birds and animals that will fill readers of all ages with wonder.

The treasures and mysteries of nature are depicted in twenty-six full-color paintings, each with a line of alliterative text. Objects that begin with that letter of the alphabet are waiting to be discovered in each illustration. Complete with detailed information about each setting painted, this is a visually and mentally stimulating experience – from A to Z.
From the Hardcover edition.

About the Author:

Margriet Ruurs has been writing stories and poetry since she was seven. She and her husband have hiked, camped, and lived in mountains from California to the Yukon. They now make their home with their two sons at the foot of Silver Star Mountain in British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley.

Andrew Kiss is one of Canada’s finest wildlife artists. His reverence for nature has brought him international acclaim. He lives in the southern interior of British Columbia near the rugged mountains and lakes of the Cariboo region with his wife and two children. He spends his time doing what he loves – painting the nature around him.
From the Hardcover edition.
