Canadian Rockies Travel Guide

We’ve recently launched an online Canadian Rockies Travel Guide using content from our books and the expertise of local authors and photographers. Our aim is create the most comprehensive and up-to-date Canadian Rockies travel planning website available.

Although much of the content also appears in traditional print form, this online medium allows the opportunity for us to update and expand content continuously.

Canadian Rockies hiking blog

Arguably, no one in the world knows more about hiking in the Canadian Rockies than Brian Patton, author of our Canadian Rockies Trail Guide. He’s been writing at the Canadian Rockies hiking blog since last summer, and continues to dispel his wisdom with regular posts (recent posts have been as varied as the history of the Great Divide Trail and hiking trails with links to Hollywood movies).

Looking for Used Books in Canmore?

In late June 2013, floods affected many businesses and residences in Canmore, including Second Story Books, a popular used bookstore and one of our oldest vendors. The store never reopened. Recently, Joy McLean of nearby Café Books leased a small space across the hallway from her main bookstore and has furnished it with beautiful wooden bookshelves that she has filled with a thoughtful selection of used books. This is the only used bookstore in the Canadian Rockies, and well worth visiting if you’re in Canmore.

The Demise of Second Story Books

Flooding has claimed one of our oldest vendors, Second Story Books in Canmore. At this point, the store’s future is uncertain, but we hope Heath and her staff all the best.
