Description

The Northwest Territories is a stunning land of remarkable contrasts with over one million kilometers of huge mountains, forests, and tundra threaded by free flowing rivers that feed thousands of pure lakes. And rare wildlife abound in this pristine environment where fewer than 40,000 people make their home. George Fischer, one of Canada’s best-known photographers, has captured this astonishing landscape in all its moods and splendor.
