Description

The towering peaks of the Canadian Rockies and Columbia Mountains rival the European Alps in fame. When traveling or climbing, hiking or skiing in these areas, have you ever wondered where the names of the peaks, rivers and lakes came from, or who named them and why? In Canadian Mountain Place Names, the authors have used their scope of knowledge and expertise, along with many outside sources, to compile an entertaining and informative treatise on the toponymy of this increasingly popular alpine region.

 

Illustrated with Glen Boles’ and Roger Laurilla’s stunning photographs, as well as Boles’ intricate line drawings, this book is a must-have for not only avid mountaineers, skiers and hikers, but also for locals and visitors with an interest in these regions. For the authors, this book has been a labour of love: for the mountains, as well as for all those who care about the mountains and are curioius about the names bestowed on these peaks and the geographic features surrounding them.
