U of A Press Publishes New Book - Climber's Paradise: Making Canada's Mountain Parks, 1906-1974

The Alpine Club of Canada imagined the Rockies and neighbouring ranges to the west and the north as a "climber's paradise." Through a century of adventure and advocacy, the ACC led the way to mountain pursuits in spectacular regions. Informed by her experiences mountaineering, the author presents a compelling case for understanding wild places and human activity within them as parts of a whole. 

This book joins the Mountain Cairns series on culture and history of the Canadian Rockies.
