Format: Hardcover
A steller, "coffee table" book with a difference.

Stunning and luscious photos of wildlife, vegetation, and vistas from Voyageurs National Park (the border lakes area between Minnesota and Ontario) are enhanced by intelligent, informative captions. Additional text explores the dynamic climate that shapes the region.

The book is divided into the seasons of the year, which seems to entice everyone to pick it up and view it again and again.

Voyageurs National Park is our only National Park that must be explored by boat or canoe. Photographer Don Breneman has spent a lifetime capturing gorgeous images of this glowing landscape. Meteorologist Mark Seeley provides context behind the photos with insights into the forces-at-work in this ever changing environment.

Printed on highest quality, photo-like paper. A book that deserves a place on your coffee table. Your friends over for a visit will love browsing this book.

Format: Hardcover
I love this National Park because it is not as busy as some of the other large ones in the U.S. so I was delighted to FINALLY see a book that has all the seasons represented and such wonderful information on the weather of each season. The photographs are simply amazing and makes you feel like you are right there in them. For the price, this is a wonderful book, a bargain actually! I would love to see more work from Don Breneman published.
