Announcing the release of our latest book, Cave and Basin, which is now available from retailers throughout the Canadian Rockies, as well as from major online book retailers for $14.95
This is the first book ever published dedicated entirely to the Cave and Basin in Banff National Park, which was instrumental to the growth of Banff and formed the nucleus of Canada’s national park system.
Authored by renowned historian E.J. (Ted) Hart, Cave and Basin offers background on what is now protected as a national historic site, exploring the story of its discovery and the lives of those involved in its development as a world-famous attraction.
