To celebrate Saskatchewan's centenary, internationally renowned master photographer Courtney Milne has returned home to celebrate his first love—Saskatchewan. The breathtaking images in Saskatchewan: The Luminous Landscape pay homage to the beauty of the province's prairies, hills, forests, lakes and skies.

From the Cypress Hills in the southwest to Selwyn Lake and the Crackingstone Peninsula in the far north, Saskatchewan: The Luminous Landscape transports viewers from iconic images of the prairie to the seldom seen vistas of the north. The 225 images—coupled with personal notes, stories and journal entries—reveal why, like all prairie natives, Courtney Milne's world travels always leave him longing for his cherished province. "It comes as no surprise," he notes, 'that we become spoiled by the dazzling displays of light—sunsets, sundogs, harvest moons, northern lights, not to mention thunder clouds, rainbows, hoarfrost, blue spring ditches and fields painted canola–yellow, mid–July green, or ripened gold."

Reviews 
"Milne’s book is simply splendid. Glorious color, sensitive prose, and marvelous images fill every page."
Library Journal

"Far more than mere depictions of the land, Milne's pictures evoke its spirit, the mystery that made people kneel there in worship and prayer and awe."
Canadian Geographic
