Peter Dettling first visited Canada's internationally renowned Rocky Mountains as a Swiss tourist in 1993. With wide-eyed exuberance, Dettling moved to the heart of the Canadian Rockies in 2003, working as an artist and nature photographer. For years he 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.
