Bryan, Liz
Liz Bryan explores and celebrates the amazing landscapes of British Columbia and traces the early history of this, Canada's western-most province. Through 18 picturesque country journeys, mostly in the Interior between the Rockies and the Coast Mountains, she takes readers through some of the most diverse and beautiful scenery in the country. British Columbia has everything: forests, rivers, lakes, grasslands, alpine peaks, sagebrush plateaus, desert valleys and badlands.This diversity can be explained in part by the province's remarkable geological history: it is not one land, but several, formed over time by unstoppable tectonic forces and modified by volcanic activity and glacial ice. In this title, much of the human history of the province, which closely follows the patterns of its geology, can be discovered along the network of roads stitching the province together. In this book, traces of the Native peoples' ancestral presence are found, along with those of the fur traders, explorers, gold miners, ranchers and homesteaders who settled here. This book offers an invitation to celebrate British Columbus' scenic heartland. Driving instructions and maps complement the text, and Bryan's colour photographs demonstrate the spectacular beauty of British Columbia. 190pp.

Foreward By Landauer, Susan
Vivid and stimulating, this lush monograph focuses on the watercolours that artist John Grillo created during his three years in San Francisco and his major - but heretofore unrecognised - contributions to the abstract expressionist movement. Each of the more than 60 colour plates is accompanied by an artist's statement that will give readers firsthand insight into the mind and creations of one of the finest 'action painters' in the post-war West Coast scene. Art students learning about watercolour media, art historians studying abstract expressionism, and collectors of abstract expressionist art will be thrilled by this brilliant new contribution to Grillo scholarship. 133pp.
