Old Indian Trails of the Canadian Rockies: 100th Anniversary Edition We seemed to have reached that horizon, and the limit of all endurance, to sit with folded hands and listen calmly to the stories of the hills we so longed to see, the hills which had lured and beckoned us for years before this long list of men had ever set foot in the country Mary TS SchafferThe yearmarks the th anniversary of the publication of Old Indian Trails of the Canadian Rockies, one of the best selling books ever published on the mountains of western CanadaIn celebration of this remarkable work of mountain literature, RMB is thrilled to issue a Limited Edition hardcover of Schaffer s classic Complete with Janice Sanford Beck s Foreword and a new selection of archival colour and black and white photos, Old Indian Trails of the Canadian Rockies will most certainly continue to enthral generations of readers, explorers and tourists for another one hundred years This isn t a book which would much interest anyone who has never been to the Canadian Rockies, especially as the Kindle edition has no illustrations to fire the imagination This is a pity as it actually contains much of interest Mary Sch ffer recounts two expeditions she made in the Rockies now part of Banff and Jasper National Parks respectively in the first decade of the 20th century when much of the region has still largely unexplored except by the First Nation people who had lived there for centuries She visited many of the places which are now well known tourist sites and was instrumental in the preservation of one of the most beautiful lakes, Maligne Lake near Jasper, where there is a Visitor Centre named after her I was especially interested in her hair raising stories about crossing rivers such as the Athabasca and Saskatchewan with pack horses, which were in constant danger of being swept away by the currents. Full of humour and wit this is a tale not to be missed A great addition to the mountain classics collection. Did not download in my Kindle
