Where to buy it


From backcountry exploring to lounging in hot springs, southern British Columbia's Kootenay-Columbia region has it all:

  • A rich and colourful mining history that rivals the famous Cariboo;
  • the province's highest peaks;
  • the best alpine heli-skiing;
  • the most historic rail-trails;
  • the biggest lakes;
  • orchards, wineries and breweries.

This is a land that can keep you enthralled for years.

Murphy Shewchuk's Kootenay Trips & Trails will help you explore the region from the US Boundary north to Valemount, and from the height of the Rockies west to the Okanagan — all done with personal insights, detailed descriptions, and full-colour maps and photographs.
