Max Elliott has called the Canadian Rockies home since 1980. She grew up on the southern prairies and in the northern boreal forest of Saskatchewan, and work and school have taken her to live on the west and east coasts of Canada. A love of walking in and observing nature has informed Max’s creations for decades. Following the award-winning success of Canadian Rockies ABC, Max now celebrates the variety of Canada’s wild animals in her second book.
