Preface : Jim Brandenburg



In this publication the five authors will share their personal visions of the Finnish Taiga. Right from the very first pages an artistic voyage into the heart of the boreal forest, peatlands and lakes will begin, through the prism of photography, drawing and writing.


This book will sum up 10 years of work which aimed to delve deep into the secret world of the Taiga.  Following the gentle colour variations through the seasons, the iconic large beasts of the boreal forest will take pride of place.  Bears, wolves and wolverines or elk and black grouse will tread these pages and play the lead roles in the wonderful adventures experienced and told by the authors.


The scientific and naturalist approach will of course not be ignored.  The most recent findings about the workings of this ecosystem will be accompany the illustrations.
