“This is not a landscape based on a sketch but like all Michener's work a landscape of the imagination filled with nostalgia and fantasy. The ring of mountains are as unreal as paper cutouts and the whole big canvas, of which man forms an inconspicuous part, is energized by the sweeping rhythms of the natural order.”
– Joan Lowndes, Vancouver Sun
