Where to buy it


40 prominent Canadian peaks, from north to south, east to west, all turned into mazes. Start at the obelisk and find the path to the top and touch the flag. This book opens the world of mountain up to children and the young at heart, learning the locations and height, and with the solutions often following actual routes, and always the structure of the mountain. The centre spread is a two-page maze of Canada's highest and the world's largest - Mt. Logan.

About the authors

Dustin Lynx hiked the 4300 kilometre Pacific Crest Trail, from Mexico to Canada, in 1994. Shortly afterward, while looking through antiquarian bookstores in Vancouver and longing to be back on the trail, he came across High Summer: Backpacking the Canadian Rockies by Chris Townsend. This book, more than any other, changed his life. Thanks to that book, he discovered the Great Divide Trail and moved to the University of Calgary so that he could hike it in 1996 between the final two years of his arts degree. That hike led to a life-long enchantment with the Rocky Mountains and eventually to his calling it home with his new family. He currently operates an IT consultancy and an award-winning publishing company called Imaginary Mountain Surveyors. Besides the third edition of this guidebook, Dustin has written for several magazines including Explore and contributed to the literary anthology, Imagine this Valley: Essays and Stories Celebrating the Bow Valley (RMB, 2016). He lives in Canmore, Alberta.
