In July of 1977, Jim and Sue Waddington began a 36 year journey of discovery that has culminated in this remarkable achievement, In the Footsteps of the Group of Seven . Determined to locate, document, and photograph the actual landscapes that inspired and influenced the brushes of A.Y. Jackson, Franklin Carmichael, Arthur Lismer, Lawren Harris, A.J. Casson, J.E.H. MacDonald, Tom Thomson, and Frederick Varley, the Waddingtons embarked on an artistic expedition that carried them across Canada from sea to sea to sea. Their search for the secret of the innovative spirit has resulted in this delightfully diverse production that brings the reader to the very spots where some of Canada's greatest art was conceived.

Richly illustrated with reproductions of the original artwork by the Group of Seven and augmented with expressive text and absorbing photographs of the actual locations where these legendary paintings were created, the Waddingtons have created a journal of enduring images that document the lush landscapes, rugged countryside, and wondrous waters that help define us as Canadians. In the Footsteps of the Group of Seven explores and details the Waddingtons' adventures, inviting us to travel with them into the wild, woods, and rivers and come face to face with the allusive muses that enlightened and enriched this renowned group of artists.

Stunningly beautiful revisiting of the sites of some of the Group of Seven's most famous works. Their world is still largely intact, and still beautiful.
