Some great books for those who know how to read.


Recommended Posts

So let me preface this by saying that I love the outdoors. I am very much in love with the Canadian Rockies and have spent countless hours/days/months/years playing out here. Recently, I've been reading the series of books put out by Sid Marty:

Men for the Mountains:


Leaning on the Wind: Under the Spell of the Great Chinook:


Switchbacks: True Stories of the Canadian Rockies


All of these are wonderfully written books and I highly recommend them to anyone, especially if you've spent any time in Western Alberta/Eastern BC parks and wilderness. I'm sure they are available at any local library. If you need a suggestion for which one to start with, try "Switchbacks". Apparently he also has a web page
