With the marking of Canada's sesquicentennial, comes the opportunity to celebrate the visual magnificence of this great and varied land.

Beginning in the Territories and the West, this visually rich and gorgeous book moves through the Prairies and on to Ontario and Quebec, completing the photographic tour in Eastern Canada. While many of the most well-known points of attraction are found in these pages--Niagara Falls, the CN Tower, Old Montreal, Dawson City, the Lions Gate Bridge--the photographers' lens also catches a surreal cloud formation in Sault Ste. Marie, the haunting beauty of the Barren Lands in central Northwest Territories, an artist's studio improbably perched on Fogo Island, the stillness of Head Lake in Algonquin Park, and the timelessness of Gastown in Vancouver. In total, it demonstrates how vast, varied, and often breathtaking Canada is, from St. John's to Victoria. With text by Roy MacGregor, one of Canada's most beloved and respected authors and journalists, and a carefully curated selection of glorious full-colour photographs from Canada's premier photo archive, All Canada Photos, The Colour of Canad a captures a diverse and extraordinary terrain, natural and man-made, that is the envy of the world.

"Big skies and big hearts. It is here where the core values of Canadians- cooperation, acceptance, tolerance- where born and where they remain the strongest today."
If you didn't guess yet which part of Canada Roy MacGregor is talking about, let me help you....The prairies! Experienced firsthand!
