About the Author

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.
