Introduction To The Book
FRAGILE INHERITANCE a painter's ecology of glaciated North America
In 1984, Aleta Karstad and Fred Schueler were commissioned by Methuen Canada to set out across
the continent, painting, writing, and collecting to compose a book about humanity's effects on
the ecology of northern North America. The resulting manuscript is an intimate description of
the nature of our land, with insights into the past, the present, and the future. They called it
"Fragile Inheritance, a painter's ecology of glaciated North America."
