Description

The Rockies: A Natural History provides a comprehensive, detailed, and scientifically up-to-date look at the biology and the ecology of the Rocky Mountains. Covering the Rockies from Alaska to the Mexican border, from sagebrush flats to windswept peaks, and from their beginnings below the ancient seas to their uncertain future, this book is the most complete natural history of the full mountain range. Written in a lively, engaging style, the text is augmented by spectacular full-color photographs and maps and elegant black-and-white line drawings.

Both an authoritative reference and an easy-to-read guide, The Rockies: A Natural History is a must for anyone who wants to know more about the splendor and diversity of these stunning mountains.

Published in partnership with the David Suzuki Foundation.

Editorial Reviews

"Now comes the ideal book for any Saskatchewanite who's feeling homesick for the prairie."

— Calgary Herald

"For readers who like more information with their photos, The Rockies: A Natural History, is a meticulous and scientific look at the flora, fauna, geology, climate, history and human impact in the Rocky Mountains. With detailed maps, beautiful pictures and informative text, this is a good choice for the armchair scientist. It's well-laid out, making good use of photos, charts and drawings."
