Abstract
Until the 1980s, Kananaskis Country, the Bow Valley and Canmore were places most people drove past on their way to Ban National Park, Lake Louise, Jasper and points beyond. Today, Kananaskis Country gets more than three million visitors a year, and Canmore is a town twice the size of Banff. Encompassing a dizzying array of natural environments, from grasslands and foothills to deep mountain valleys and sweeping alpine vistas, Kananaskis Country and the Bow Valley attract visitors from around the world each year to this mountain paradise. Calgarians consider this landscape to be their backyard and they turn to it for recreation, solace and wilderness adventure. Where Rivers Meet will bring the beauty and wonder of this profound landscape and its wild creatures to visitors from around the world and local residents alike. This artistically designed coffee table book features over 200 black and white and colour images together with short essays and personal reflections on natural history, geology, the cultural background and the region’s communities, as well as the threats and solutions to development and social challenges found throughout Kananaskis Country and the Bow Valley.

Abstract
Water does not come from the river. It comes to the river. Heart Waters takes us to the sources of that water – and into the living beauty, human stories and future possibilities that also arise from the green uplands and valleys of Alberta’s Eastern Slopes, where the mighty Bow River is born. For more than a century the foothills and Front Range mountains of western Alberta have been recognized as being vital to the water supply for western Canada. Virtually all the water that sustains communities, ecosystems and the economy of prairie Canada comes from this narrow strip of land arrayed along the Continental Divide. For all its importance, however, water management decisions affecting this enormous region have ignored the significance of land health and focused almost exclusively on building dams. The result, as the author points out, is that the Bow River’s annual flows have decreased by more than a tenth, even as spring floods become more frequent and more destructive. The solutions to prairie Canada’s water challenges lie in healing the wounded landscapes of our headwaters. Heart Waters delves deeply into the history and ecology of a landscape whose critical value as a watershed is matched by its sheer beauty and diversity. A rich array of stunning images by Jasper-based photographer Brian Van Tighem complements the author’s well-researched explorations of the stories whispered by the living waters that drain from Banff National Park, Kananaskis Country and the famous ranchlands of the Bow River watershed. Kevin Van Tighem’s latest book is a deep exploration of place and an invitation to recognize that our water future depends upon knowing our headwaters better and caring for them more passionately — as our heart waters.
