The Will of the Land

Peter Dettling first visited Canada’s internationally renowned Rocky Mountains national parks in 1993. Immediately, he fell in love with the seemingly untouched wilderness and started to documented the beauty and splendour of life in the mountains of western Canada. In time, however, he gained insight into the realities of nature s growing struggle against developing tourism, ill-conceived transportation routes and questionable wildlife management practices.

Through Dettling’s stunning photography and passionate narrative,  The Will of the Land , serves as an incredible artistic testament to the beauty of the natural world and the sometimes painful truth of hyperdevelopment in majestic landscapes, offering the reader a dynamic and broad vision of what national parks should stand for in our ever-changing world.

Vergessene Wildnis - Spurensuche in der Surselva

Foreward by Andreas Moser - Biologist and Editorial Director, Swiss Radio & Television

Forgotten Wilderness was released in the fall of 2010 in Switzerland. In this book Peter narrates his search for the last remaining pockets of "true wilderness" in the Swiss Alps and also tells of his encounter with one lone wolf living in the region of Surselva. His encounter gave Peter Dettling the opportunity to make some of the first ever good quality pictures of a wolf on Swiss soil, not derived from a camera trap. All text is written in German and is currently availble only from Europe.
