About this book

The Magnificent Nahanni extols the natural wonders of the South Nahanni Valley in the Northwest Territories of Canada – its untamed waters, high, glaciated mountains, great falls, deep canyons, extensive forests, alpine tundra, and diverse wildlife, including caribou, wolf, Dall's sheep, and grizzly bear. It is also the story of cooperative efforts to conserve this area of the Northwest Territories as a National Park while enabling Indigenous people to continue to hunt and fish there.

Media reviews

"Fascinating and impressive."
– Thomas Gunton, Director of Resource and Environmental Planning, Simon Fraser University and former Deputy Minister of Environment, Lands and Parks, Government of British Columbia

"Just as the Nahanni is an exceptional place, this is no ordinary book. It contains reflections on this remarkable national park landscape by one of the keenest students of parks and protected areas this country has ever produced."
– Harvey Locke, co-founder of Yellowstone-Yukon Conservation Initiative and past president of Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society

"[A]n exemplary multi-discipline approach to land use studies and cooperative approaches to researach, planning and land management, especially involving Indigenous and non-governmental gorups--in short, this book makes a major contribution to research."
– John S. Marsh, co-editor, Changing Parks
