Through the lens of his camera, Douglas Leighton has captured the magic and the majesty of the Canadian Rockies. Because he is himself a resident of these mountains, his reverence of the alpine wilderness is evident in his photography. His images successfully convey the pristine nature of this ever-changing landscape. Leighton's work represents both his respect for the unique character of the Rockies and his aspiration to share with others the beauty of this untamed place. This is the all-time, best-selling book on the Canadian Rockies. It has been extensively revised and updated for this edition. The result is the most complete and most beautiful portrait of the Canadian Rockies ever released.About the Author:
