"Greystone Books has produced another equally handsome coffee-table book: Yukon: A Wilder Place, which showcases the colour photographs of Fritz Mueller, with an accompanying text by freelance writer Teresa Earle...Mueller is a biologist, and his photographs are informed by his knowledge -- and awe -- of nature. There are majestic panoramas of mountains and rivers, delicate close-ups of butterflies and flowers, and dramatic scenes of caribou herds in migration, as well as grizzly bears in pursuit of prey."--Montreal Gazette "A celebration of Yukon -- one of the world's last wild places -- this remarkable collection of photographs captures fleeting, compelling moments in a timeless landscape. From a bear eating his breakfast, to a rare orchid photographed in a top-secret location, to an icefield bathed in the pink glow of desert dust carried from halfway around the globe, Yukon is an exquisite portrayal of Canadian landscape."--Vancouver SunReseña del editor:
In this remarkable collection of photographs, Fritz Mueller captures fleeting, compelling moments in a timeless Yukon landscape, one of the world's wildest and most overlooked wilderness areas. The view through Mueller's lens is influenced by his scientific roots and inspired by his visual artist's aesthetic. Mueller takes readers on the annual migration of the Porcupine caribou herd, and he captures intimate portraits of icy grizzly bears gorging on salmon at the Arctic Circle. Mueller crosses sprawling glaciers and navigate Yukon's clear mountain rivers. His appreciation for nature's minutiae -- voles, berries, frogs -- is a refreshing perspective on a landscape writ large. Complemented by evocative text by Teresa Earle, this book is a celebration of all things wild, from vivid northern lights to enchanting landscapes to elusive wildlife. As wilderness vanishes and intact ecosystems deteriorate, the Yukon remains one of the last wild hot spots, a conservation treasure of international significance.
