Climbs and Exploration in the Canadian Rockies
'. . . years ago the Dominion of Canada, stretching as it does over thousands of miles, covered with dense forests, watered by unnumbered rivers, and dotted over with countless lakes, was a land in many places as difficult of access as Siberia; and its Rocky Mountains, the back-bone of the continent, were almost unknown.' - Stutfield & CollieFirst published in 1903, Climbs & Exploration in the Canadian Rockies details the mountaineering adventures of Hugh Stutfield and J. Norman Collie while the two were together during various explorations in the area north of Lake Louise, Alberta. Between 1898 and 1902, Stutfield and Collie journeyed through the mountain towns, valleys and passes of the Rockies, where Collie completed numerous first ascents and discovered fresh views of Lake Louise and the Columbia Icefields.
