Writers Steve Woodruff and Don Schwennesen teamed up with photographer Carl Davaz for an unprecedented, year-long exploration of Montana's 15 designated wilderness areas. The trio covered more than 10,000 miles, traveling by foot, skis, canoe, raft, horseback, car, airplane and helicopter. They spent more than 230 days and nights in the wilderness, most of the time far off the beaten track.
Along the way, they shot nearly 16,000 photographs and conducted hundreds of hours of interviews with wilderness explorers, rangers, biologists, miners, loggers, ranchers, politicians, and philosophers. They talked with people on all sides of the wilderness issues - in an effort to provide an expansive, balanced view of one of Montana's most precious resources.
