About this title


The towering peaks of the Canadian Rockies and Columbia Mountains rival the European Alps in fame. When travelling or climbing, hiking or skiing in these areas, have you ever wondered where the names of the peaks, rivers and lakes came from, or who named them and why? In Canadian Mountain Place Names, the authors have used their scope of knowledge and expertise, along with many outside sources, to compile an entertaining and informative treatise on the toponymy of this increasingly popular alpine region. Originally published as Place Names of the Canadian Alps, this new edition is completely revised and updated. Illustrated with Glen Boles' and Roger Laurilla's stunning photographs, as well as Boles' intricate line drawings, this book is a must-have not only for avid mountaineers, skiers and hikers, but also for locals and visitors with an interest in these regions. For the authors, this book has been a labour of love: for the mountains, as well as for all those who care about the mountains.

About the Author:

Artist and photographer Glen Boles has climbed extensively throughout North America and Europe. Raised in Revelstoke, B.C., Roger Laurilla was exposed to the mountains at an early age. His images have been published in many magazines. Honoured by mountaineering societies at home and abroad, William Putnam is a highly decorated veteran of the 10th Mountain Division (Second World War).
