Local authors and keen hikers Brian Patton and Bart Robinson have lived in the Canadian Rockies for over 30 years. Since the publication of the first edition of the Canadian Rockies Trail Guide, they have written extensively about the natural and human history of the region.Review:
"I met Brian Patton and Bart Robinson in the summer of 1970 when I was working as a mountain guide at Lake O'Hara and Brian and Bart showed up in the valley doing their initial research for what was to become the iconic "Trail Guide to the Canadian Rockies". The pair was walking every trail in the range, notebook in hand, pushing a measuring wheel and noting all the distances. This, I am sure, is the only time that this has ever been done and I feel comfortable in saying that every guidebook author since, has used Brian and Bart's trail distances. Their book is the original and, in my opinion, still the best." --Chic Scott
