The Great Divide documents artist Ernie Kroeger's 10-year obsession with the Great Divide, a major North American watershed. The book includes high-quality reproductions of Kroeger's panoramic photographs, as well as his personal writings and historical research, presenting an unusual exploration of the much-photographed Canadian Rockies. Accompanied by Alberto Manguel's literary reading of Kroeger's work, The Great Divide should appeal to members of the artistic and literary communities, as well as people interested in mountain landscapes and culture.
"Ernie Kroeger's mountain photography goes far to visually define the notion of the Canadian alpine and the splendour of the Rocky Mountains ... he gives me the illusion that there was no camera between the mountain and myself." --Calvin Daniels, Yorkton This Week"A book which takes one away from the view of mountains on the horizon, and instead ... to the mountains' surfaces, where we glimpse much smaller details." --Charles Mandel, Calgary Herald
