Island of Biodiversity
"Island of Biodiversity" is now available in softcover, 92 pages, full colour, with paintings by Aleta Karstad and photos by Candice Vetter.
Copies can be purchased through the Bourget Inn & Spa, or through Urban Country in Russell.
Or order your copy online for $35.94 at http://www.lulu.com/spotlight/karstad
In the tradition of the Group of Seven but with the eye of a naturalist, Aleta Karstad paints the Canadian landscape au plein air. While Aleta paints, her biologist husband Fred Schueler makes a scientific survey of the surrounding area, giving special attention to species which many people overlook, but which contribute to the balance of biodiversity. Their journals are blended in the story which accompanies each painting. Candice Vetter is a freelance writer and journalist who lives in North Russell. She has been fascinated by the unique features of the red shale hill since first calling it her home 20 years ago. Their collaboration in pictures and words illuminates the histories—of the rock and soil, people and nature—of this distinctive feature of eastern Ontario.
