Among his subjects are: the old guide who built a staircase up a cliff; the stranded snowshoer who was rescued between rounds of beer in a Banff tavern; the man who catered to hungry grizzlies; an opinionated packrat with a gift for larceny; and a horse named Candy whose heart was as big as a stove. Along the way, Marty tries to answer the kind of questions that all of us must face some day.
Do we really have to "grow up" and abandon adventure as well as youthful ideals? Can the mountains draw old friends back together, when politics and life styles have set them apart?
Tales from the Canadian Rockies
Sid Marty writes gracefully of the land he loves and lampoons a few bureaucrats whose policies sometimes threaten its integrity. His portraits of the people - and creatures - that make their lives in the mountains are affectionate and respectful. Original Title. Other Editions 3.

Nov 12, Beverly rated it liked it. Most of the stories were interesting but I did find it a bit of a slog to get through. The earlier stories remind us that someone had to "discover" the trail long before us modern adventurers hit the trail. A couple stories were quite humorous - human nature doesn't change much in years.
