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.
