The Enduring Wilderness and Canada’s National Parks


Two weeks ago, we published a guest post by Dr. Claire Campbell about our film The Enduring Wilderness. It was part 1 of a 3-part series about Canada’s national parks – each post incorporating the same film in a different and interesting way.

The 3 posts were written by contributors to the forthcoming book, A Century of Parks Canada, 1911 – 2011. The Enduring Quiet of the Wilderness was written by John Sandlos, a historian of Canada’s national parks while the third post, Filming Parks, was written by Dr. Ronald Rudin of Concordia University.

The series was compiled by NiCHE, the Network in Canadian History & Environment blog. NiCHE’s mandate is to study environmental matters in their historical context so as to have some sort of measurement of relative change. It then shares its findings with fellow researchers, policy makers and the Canadian public. Its mission is to provide a forum for the field and to support collaboration among scholars.
