John and Linda have been to Journeyman Lodge many times over the years and we were more than honoured when they decided to formally tie the knot at our venue. This remarkable duo are launching their book in Squamish and Whistler this week, giving presentations:
Friday, Nov.20 - Whistler Arts Council. 7:00pm at Millenium Place, WHISTLER $10.00 fee
It kinda goes without saying, but...if you're in our neck of the woods, we think you should attend ;)
Earlier this week, they appeared on the Global News - morning addition to promote the book. Give the video below a gander for summary in their own words along with a sneak peak at the artful photography inside.
In addition to the enchanting imagery one would expect of a mountain lover's coffee-table book, 'Soul of Wilderness' offers a collection of essays and inner ponderings directly from this inspiring pair's journeys in western BC, Yukon, and Alaska. "The main focus of this photography book is to inspire people to discover, connect with, and care for our precious wilderness.", says Linda.
Christmas gift idea? Absolutely...talk about buying local and putting your wallet where your heart is! You can purchase the book directly through their publisher at Harbour Publishing. Here's an introductory preview: "We are fortunate to live near the western mountains of British Columbia, which contain some of the last wilderness in North America outside of the Arctic. The mountains are home to grizzly bears and wolves, and where salmon run wild and mountain goats and wolverines roam through terrain that has not changed since the arrival of Europeans to North America. This book is a look at those wilderness areas: their beauty, their essence, their soul."
