About this book

The Rocky Mountains are familiar to everyone in North America, yet few appreciate the true diversity of these mountains. This book covers the Rockies from sagebrush flats to icy tundra, and explores the range's geological formation; its role in shaping the West; the plants and animals that form its many ecosystems; and the complex relationship between humans and the Rockies.

Co-published with the David Suzuki Foundation.
