Why Labrador?

One of my most persistent memories of this rarely seen part of Canada has been northern Labrador's vastness, isolation and wildness.

Far from busy roads or crowded villages the Kiglapaits, Kaumajets and Torngat mountains rise from a deep cold sea, isolated, ice-covered and bare. Misty fjords, towering cliffs and dark lost valleys hold secrets long hidden and remain so. Here long ago Vikings passed and Inuit hunted. Today it lies waiting to be discovered. This is not a land as Sebastian Cabot once said "God gave to Cain" but a land that will seduce you by its sheer grandeur and beauty.

Everyone takes pictures to bring back memories of times and places that moved them. The greater the emotional impact or involvement the greater is the need to preserve them. Precious memories fade quickly and become fleeting. My experience with Labrador has been long and intense. Compiling the images of sixteen trips refreshes old memories and allows stories to re-surface that are just wanting to be told. A book gels this mosaic of emotions, discoveries and feelings.

There is also a joy and satisfaction in sharing my images and the experience of my voyages with others who can travel vicariously or plan trips of their own. A book would open a dialogue with kindred spirits, artists and travellers alike and the beauty of Labrador would not be lost but twice shared.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the finest books ever on Labrador! This book combines heart-stopping adventure with what have to be the most stunning pictures ever taken in Labrador.  The author, Arnold Zageris, is a skilled photographer and has the needed knowledge on canoeing and hiking in the most rugged wilderness in Canada, to have captured never before seen images of spectacular and beautiful scenery. The author spent 3 decades travelling in Labrador.  His descriptions of his different trips, the wildlife encountered and a number of close scrapes, already make the book a must read.  The nearly 200 color pictures on a glossy background in this 11 X 12 inch hardcover book make this an extraordinary coffee table book. I have canoed for a decade in Labrador, but there are many scenes in Zageris' book that I have never had the good fortune to see.
