Speaker Series – ‘Soul of Wilderness’ with John Baldwin & Linda BilyLocation: Sardis Secondary School Theatre, ,
“SOUL OF WILDERNESS” | MOUNTAIN JOURNEYS IN WESTERN BC AND ALASKA BY JOHN BALDWIN AND LINDA BILY
Our first speaker series of this year is kicking off with two local adventurers John Baldwin and Linda Bily. Partners, co-authors and talented photographers, John and Linda have ventured into the magical landscapes of the Coast Mountains. Travelling by foot and ski, their goal was simply to experience and document as much of these remote places as possible-to wander across the high meadows, ski from mountain tops and revel in the artful patterns of new-fallen snow. Their new book, “Soul of Wilderness” is a stunning coffee-table book that is sure to inspire readers to discover and connect with the intense beauty of this mountain wilderness.
“Linda and I are fortunate to live near the western mountains of British Columbia, which contain some of the last wilderness areas in North America outside of the arctic. This is an area that supports grizzly bears and wolverines, where salmon run wild and the wolves and mountain goats roam through areas that have not changed since the arrival of Europeans to North America. This book is a look at those wilderness areas: their beauty, their essence, their soul.”
