PHOTO BY WAYNE LYNCH
HÄLLE FLYGARE was born and raised in Sweden, where his interest in photography began at a very young age. He came to Canada as a forestry professional and for many years was a Park Warden in Banff National Park. Since 1982, he has worked as a professional photographer, travelling to over 25 countries and leading nature and wildlife photographic tours. Hälle has lived in and photographed the Canadian Rockies for the last 30 years and has an excellent knowledge of its flora and fauna.


Hälle's photographs have been published in leading nature magazines and books throughout the world. He is the author of four books published in Sweden and Canada, and his wildflower images illustrate the book Wildflowers of the Canadian Rockies, which has sold over 38,000 copies and is an established classic.

Hälle was the original instigator for the preservation of the 350-km (220-mile) long Alexander Mackenzie Heritage Trail in British Columbia. While guiding there in 1972, he discovered sections of Mackenzie's 1793 route from the Fraser River across Tweedsmuir Provincial Park's Rainbow Mountains to Bella Coola. Alexander Mackenzie was the first white man to cross the North American continent. In 1989 Hälle received the British Columbia Heritage Award for his outstanding contribution toward the recognition and preservation of the trail.

Five years ago Hälle established a new business which sell books and nature cards through his new website: www.natureinwildplaces.com

WILDFLOWERS OF THE CANADIAN ROCKIES

The national parks of the Canadian Rocky Mountains are natural botanical gardens of enormous diversity and interest. This convenient, easy-to-use guide is the first flower book to feature wildflowers from all five of these national parks - Banff, Jasper, Kootenay, Waterton Lakes, and Yoho.


Over 200 species of plants are vividly described, in clear, non-technical language, each description accompanied by an accurate full-colour photograph for easy identification. There are hints on where and when to look for the wildflowers, as well as tidbits of folk and natural lore about them. The authors have included all the most common species that are likely to be encountered along the roadsides and hiking trails of the national parks, but they have also sought out some rare and shy beauties discovered while exploring more remote wilderness.
