Walter J. Phillips was born in Lincolnshire, England, and immigrated to Canada in 1913 at the age of 29, after spending considerable time studying abroad in South Africa and Paris. Today, he is considered one of the most accomplished watercolourist artists Canada has ever produced. In 1941, he became resident artist at the Banff School of Fine Arts, and played a vital role in the development of that institution's visual arts program. Phillips' career spanned from the early 1900s through the late 1950s, when the increasing frailty of his eyesight caused him to stop painting. Phillips' work has been widely exhibited throughout North American and Great Britain. His topics ranged from the Canadian prairies to the Rocky Mountains. "The work of Walter J. Phillips embodies local landscapes and human activities in those landscapes using a vocabulary forged in Japanese woodcut processes....Through the skillful superimposition of many layers of transparent water colours, he created images of great beauty, subtlety and depth." -- Willock Sax Gallery This is the fourth volume in Lisa Christensen's highly acclaimed Hiker's Guide to Art of the Canadian Rockies series, which "takes the art off the wall and presents it in the context of the magnificent locations that inspired its creation.

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.

Arthur Philemon Coleman was a passionate Canadian and one of the first to truly discover the beauty and majesty of this country''s mountain ranges as an explorer, geologist and mountaineer. In 1884, before the railway traversed the Rocky and Columbia mountains, Coleman headed west on the first of what would be eight mountaineering expeditions, making his way on foot and pack horse, with Native guides and without, over passes in Alberta and British Columbia. First published in 1911, this new edition gives modern-day readers a glimpse of the early days of mountaineering in the Canadian west. It paints a sympathetic picture of the rugged men and women who opened the region and of the hardships they endured. In his travels he encountered some of the main characters in Canadian mountaineering history, including Mary Schdffer, Joby Beaver, Frank Sibbald, Reverend George Kinney and Adolphus Moberly.

"For many people, moving to a mountain town is the realization of a dream, the final step in a pilgrimage to a relaxed lifestyle in a rugged and beautiful setting. For Jamey, the long journey began when he was a teenager in the 1980s with the vague idea there might be a better life somewhere 'out West', Eventually he fled the chaos and stress of the big city and tried to settle into an uncomplicated Rocky Mountain existence. It wouldn't stay uncomplicated for long. A spirited amble by bicycle and on foot, inspired by the work of Bill Bryson, [this] explores the heart of the Rocky Mountain Parks and examines the consequences of celebrating that beauty too effectively with mass tourism and over-ambitious development. Eschewing the convenience of motorized transportation, Glasnovic earns every kilometre that passes beneath his feet, and along the way he learns a thing or two about feeling profoundly connected to place - an experience some would describe as being home"--Publisher's description.
