Extra Content

From the Author

Designed and printed in Canada using paper with 10% recycled content and a hardcover material that is 100% recycled. The book is separated into five main sections: a four-page introduction with textual information on Banff National Park, along with a beautiful hand-crafted map of the park by the designer, Richard Maruk of Ivy Design in Calgary, Alberta.  The introduction is followed by four chapters, one on the Banff area, one on the Banff to Lake Louise area, one on the Lake Louise area, and then one final chapter highlighting the incredible scenery on the Icefields Parkway from Lake Louise to Jasper.There is an excellent mix of frontcountry scenes that everyone will recognize along with some backcountry gems that few people ever get to see.  The book also includes some of John's favourite wildlife images.The stylish design (featuring a unique cigar band cover) and perfect size, combined with the spectacular images, quickly made this the best-selling coffee table book in the Canadian Rockies.  In June 2008, this book became John's first Canadian bestseller.

Editorial Reviews

"It takes a certain bravery to add another collection of Rocky Mountain photography to Canada's bookshelf.  Perhaps John Marriott succeeds because his intimate relationship with Banff National Park began when he was an intrepid 10-year-old tracking bears with his Instamatic.  Later, Marriott worked as a naturalist in Banff, and his expertise shines in these 78 photographs.  He hikes beyond the obvious to document the faint shadow of a trail through a wildflower meadow or a winter moonrise over Mount Rundle.  The most sensitive photographs are almost always images of animals: an elk cow and calf crossing First Vermilion Lake; a pine marten peeking out of a snowdrift; a grizzly bear that stares you straight in the eye and dares you to turn the page.  Unforgettable."- Linda Goyette, Canadian Geographic Jan/Feb 2008 (reprinted with permission of The Royal Canadian Geographical Society)
