Alpine Beauty

Alpine and Subalpine Wildflowers of the Canadian Rockies and the Columbia Mountains

Alpine Beauty

Alpine Beauty explores the wildflowers and flowering shrubs commonly found in the subalpine and alpine environments in the Rocky Mountains of western Canada. Due to harsh weather conditions, the plants that exist at higher elevations are generally different than those at lower elevations. In this environment, low shrub and herb communities become the rule. The plants tend to be dwarf-sized, low-growing, fast-growing in the short season, and covered with fine, soft hairsall adaptations to the harsh environment.Alpine Beauty will inform and intrigue readers of all ages, while also assisting with plant identification and recognition. Exceptional photographs and interesting information about each plant make this book ideal for hikers and amblers of all skill levels. For ease of reference, the book is arranged by flower color and by plant family. A complete index is included, using common and scientific names for all plants. One final cautionary notethe pursuit of wildflowers can be addictive, though not hazardous to your health.

Old Indian Trails of the Canadian Rockies

“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 T.S. Schäffer Mary T.S. Schäffer was an avid explorer and one of the first non-Native women to venture into the heart of the Canadian Rocky Mountains, where few women—or men—had gone before.
