Drawing from the Mountain is a powerfully illustrated journey through a lifetime of mountain experiences, from childhood to fatherhood, in the Canadian Rockies. Using words, artwork and photography, Lorne Perry reveals a life lived at times on the edge and sometimes over the edge, as he overcomes the shock of mountaineering accidents and an attack by a grizzly bear to wander the high places again.

Perry carries a camera and dog-eared sketchbook on hikes, climbs and ski-mountaineering ascents, hoping to capture the essence of what really has become a place in his heart.
