“Sometimes that amazing sense of place becomes overwhelming and claustrophobic and, I say in the book, that the magnetic draw that holds a lot of us in the Bow Valley and in the Rocky Mountains, sometimes repels us." Editor Stephen Legault - Author/Photographer talks to The Bow Valley Crag & Canyon about the new book, Imagine This Valley.

"Imagine This Valley began as an idea when Legault was living and working in Lake Louise in 1996 – at the time of the Bow Valley Study and the Special Places 2000 process. He said his mind turned to what it was he wanted the Bow Valley to be in 20 years, sparking the start of the essay collection with writers like Ben Gadd and Kevin Van Tighem." Rocky Mountain Outlook talks to Stephen Legault about this new collection of essays and stories celebrating the Bow Valley.
