This second edition of Peter Dettling's stunning, bestselling and highly controversial book The Will of the Land, which earned the praise of Farley Mowat, Ben Gadd, Doug Peacock, Canadian Geographic Magazine and Outdoor Photography Canada, features a new afterword by the author that updates readers on the continuing plight of the fragile ecosystem that exists in one of North America's most renowned, popular and threatened natural spaces. .

Peter Dettling first visited Canada's internationally renowned Rocky Mountains national parks as a Swiss tourist in 1993. Immediately, he fell in love with the untouched wilderness, breathtaking landscapes, diverse flora and abundant animal life, all seemingly free from human intervention and manipulation. .

With wide-eyed exuberance, Dettling moved to the heart of the Canadian Rockies in 2003, working as an artist and nature photographer. For years he documented the beauty and splendour of life in the mountains of western Canada, selling his art and photography to countless tourists and locals. In time, however, he gained insight into the realities of nature's growing struggle against developing tourism, ill-conceived transportation routes and questionable wildlife management practices.
