Roger Boulet, The Tranquility and the Turbulence, 1981, the 1945 watercolour entitled Above Lake Louise reproduced page 202 and the colour woodcut reproduced page 203

This woodcut was produced in an edition of 200 for members of The Woodcut Society in Alexandria, Virginia. Walter J. Phillips wrote about this print in the original presentation folder: "The tumbling water had a faint luminosity in that somewhat gloomy setting. I walked to the southern end of the lake to make my sketches…I stopped when Mount Lefroy came into view - its snow-capped peak hidden by a cloud, and felt inspired to make a note of what I saw. The cold draughts from the glaciers were forgotten for an hour, but when I had finished I stood up and shivered so violently that I startled the young mountain sheep that had been looking over my shoulder to see what I was doing."
