Product Description

About the Author

John McQuarrie is an Ottawa-based author and photographer whose major clients have included Coors, Marlboro, McDonnell-Douglas and Lockheed. But his real passion is producing coffee table books. His earlier works focused on the Canadian Air Force from the Second World War to the Gulf War and the Canadian Armed Forces in their role as Peacekeepers. John then turned his camera onto the cattle business and working cowboys. And he is quick to point out that his unfulfilled childhood dream of becoming either a cowboy or a fighter pilot has, in later life, finally been realized vicariously through the lens of his camera. Chris Hadfield decided to become an astronaut after watching the Apollo moon landing with his family at their cottage on that momentous July day in 1969. He was nine years old, and it was impossible for Canadians to become astronauts. In 2013, he served as Commander of the International Space Station (ISS) orbiting the Earth during a five-month mission. Fulfilling this lifelong dream required intense focus, natural ability and a singular commitment to space exploration. During this mission, Hadfield enthralled novice space enthusiasts with his Twitter feed, offering insight into his life aboard the station. When he launched in 2012 he had 20,000 followers and this list had grown to just under one million by the time he returned to Earth five months later. Like anything this astronaut did, he excelled in photography, taking and sharing stunning images of our home planet - over one hundred of which form the centerpiece of; Earth, Spirit of Place. His celebrity took another leap shor General Walt Natynczyk is a native of Winnipeg, Manitoba. He joined the Canadian Forces in 1975 after spending five years as an Air Cadet. He has served in numerous regimental command positions at all levels from tank troop leader up to commanding officer of The Royal Canadian Dragoons. General Natynczyk served as Canada's Chief of Defence Staff from 2 July 2008 to 29 October 2012 and, in August of 2013 assumed the responsibilities of the President of the Canadian Space Agency.

This fabulous coffee table book, Earth, Spirit of Place is the perfect addition to Chris Hadfield's, "An Astronaut's Guide to Life on Earth."

These absolutely stunning photos of earth taken from the ISS are an inspiration and a reminder of how beautiful, precious and delicate our earth really is.

1.0 out of 5 stars Chris Hadfield had nothing to do with writing this book - very misleading. 11 Dec. 2014
By Robin Hadfield - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is misleading since it was NOT written by Chris Hadfield. The author merely used NASA and CSA photos. Was disappointed in his promoting this book as being Hadfield's. Don't waste your money, go buy Chris Hadfield's new photo book, it is fabulous.
