Description - Mountain Year by Chris Czajowski

In 1988, Chris Czajkowski walked into British Columbia's Central Coast Mountains to build a homestead, a business, and a life. "A Mountain Year" is a beautifully produced art book full of original paintings, sketches and diary entries, offering an awe-inspiring glimpse into the life of this independent spirit and the landscape that she calls home. In this illustrated journal, Czajkowski intimately describes the splendour of seasonal transformation with her trademark expressiveness; each day brings new obstacles and surprising revelations. At the start of the year, she writes, "The night was bright with a silvery soup of moonlight refracted off snowflakes fine as stardust." Spring arrives with breathtaking beauty and summer brings company from abroad. In the fall, Chris travels back to her first autumn at Nuk Tessli when she views "an extraordinarily beautiful moment. The clouds hung low enough to almost touch the water ...and a wonderful, bluish, pearly luminescence covered everything." Prepare to witness the magnificence of a year in British Columbia's high-altitude wilderness, a place of astounding natural beauty like no other.

Chris Czajkowski is well-known author and naturalist who has lived in the wilderness for the last 21 years. When she decided to build her own home in the backwoods of British Columbias Coast Mountains, all the odds were against her. She was not entirely used to using a chainsaw; she knew little about building; and she had never lived so far from amenities. Yet she intended to do it alone. Her family had always lived by the code If you want something, you make it rather than buy it.
