Description: In Romancing the Rockies: Mountaineers, Missionaries, Marilyn & More, award-winning popular historian Brian Brennan introduces us to the daring men and women who have found themselves drawn irresistibly to the magnificent Canadian Rocky Mountains. Whether they visited the lofty peaks and sheltered valleys, made journeys of exploration, pilgrimage, adventure, physical endeavour or cultural achievement, all were seduced by the romance, the allure, and the mystique of these ancient and fabled mountains.
A passionate storyteller, Brennan begins with legends drawn from the Stoney oral tradition and goes on to introduce us to an incredible cast of characters, from pioneering missionaries and 19th-century botanists, to famed painters, intrepid mountain guides and outfitters, and one dedicated weatherman. And there's more, much more.
With stories of the famous, the infamous, the unsung and the unstrung, Romancing the Rockies is a tribute to the spirit of the Rockies. Readers will find this book by turns inspiring, entertaining and surprising.
