By Dr. Roberta Bondar
It is the great Canadian cliché to rhapsodize over our northern landscape as stunningly beautiful, richly varied and deeply reflective of the drama of four distinct seasons. Yet there is a compelling reality behind the myth: it is, quite simply, true. Never has this truth been more perceptively recorded than in the careful, superbly crafted, large-format photographs of Roberta Bondar.
One of Canada's great scientists and first astronauts, she has traveled the length and breadth of the country from Haida Gwaii to Terra Nova, Ellesmere Island to Point Pelee, capturing some 10,000 images of Canada's finest natural landscapes.
This little book is a love letter to Canada, combining forty new images with the words of distinguished Canadians. There are eloquent contributions from Pierre Elliott Trudeau, Susan Aglukark, Oscar Peterson, Bryan Adams, Douglas Coupland, Iona Campagnolo, Gordon Pinsent, Pam Wallin, Deepa Mehta, Paul Gross and Peter Gzowski and many more, all accompanying images resonant with their sentiments. The result is an elegant, full colour, beautifully designed and inspirational volume that conveys something fresh and memorable about the place we call Canada.
