Yukon, Rugged Beauty (Hardcover)
George Fischer's immense talent for capturing the spirit of a place through images has never been more pronounced than in this book showcasing a tiny territory that packs a big punch. With a population of only 40,000 souls spread over 482,443 square kilometres, the Yukon is home to Canada's tallest mountain, the world's largest weathervane and the Earth's toughest dogsled race. It also boasts the planet's smallest sand desert and most extensive collection of international signposts.
In an epic journey into this faraway land, George presents a bonanza of breathtaking images. He takes you up into the rugged mountains and down into the frosty fjords. In between, you'll stand in the footsteps of gold rush hopefuls. Cross rivers and plains where unusual wildlife roams. Stroll the streets of Wild West sagas. Immerse yourself in ancient cultures and modern music. And sip Yukon Jack in Dawson City or Whitehorse as you rock with the tempo and tones of the classic cancan.
