Description

First 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.

About the Authors

Hugh E.M. Stutfield (1858-1929), who accompanied Collie on some of his trips to Canada, was a respected alpine climber and author. His talent as a first-rate marksman saved the party from starvation on many an occasion.


J. Norman Collie (1859 - 1942) began his impressive climbing career on the Isle of Skye, later making first ascents in the Alps and Caucasus and climbing with a British expedition in the Himalayas. Collie first journeyed to Canada in 1897, returning for further climbing adventures in 1898, 1900, 1902, 1910 and 1911, making 21 first ascents in the Canadian Rockies and naming many of western Canada''s major peaks.


Gillean Daffern has been writing and publishing bestselling trail guides to Kananaskis Country for over 30 years, ever since the dawn of K Country in 1978. She was exploring the area well before then, too, so she knows it intimately and in every season of the year. She also travels to mountain areas outside of Kananaskis Country, and in particular enjoys visiting countries off the beaten tourist path. Gillean is the founder of Rocky Mountain Books and, along with her husband, Tony Daffern, was awarded the Banff Mountain Festival’s Summit of Excellence Award in 2006.
