The Northern Rockies Ecotour
The Northern Rockies Ecotour is a remarkable journey of discovery through the west-central Alberta including the northern part of the Canadian Rocky Mountain Parks World Heritage Site. 265 photos, 22 maps and 133 Ecopoints present the regions’ rich First Nations history, exploits of early fur-traders, artists, missionaries, tourists and scientists and the ongoing interplay of people, wildlife and their inspiring mountain and foothills ecosystem. The authors draw on current research to discuss key environmental issues such as climate change and biodiversity conservation.
