This book is a guide post hand book to the geology, flora, and fauna of the beautiful, majestic mountains. Totally comprehensive. A bit on the heavy side, however, and perhaps not ideal if you are backpacking and looking to save on weight.

One of the most detailed books about the Canadian Rockies. It encompasses all genres of interest and it invaluable as a guide when walking through the mountains.

The ultimate book about the Canadian Rockies is Ben Gadd's Handbook of the Canadian Rockies. It has everything - history, geology, climate, flora, fauna, hiking trails, you name it. There were some intrepid fur traders and later explorers who, with the assistance of Aboriginal guides, mapped the Rocky Mountains and identified the river valleys and passes through which railway lines could be built. In Canada, as in the USA, the building of the railway was a major factor in uniting the west coast with the rest of the country.

  • None of the books (and I bought about 6) were designed for someone like me who basically drives (disabled) and stops and does a photo walk to the falls and back. There should be someone who writes for those of us who aren't hikers or professional photographers or mommies with a van full of kids. We are out there, and we at at cafe's not 5 star restaurants and not McDonald's. So, for what its worth, when in Canmore, check out Craig's restaurant, the Icefield Parkway is a breeze to drive, and ez to stop but the walks are strenuous, even the short ones, the walk from the parking lot to the falls or lake is almost straight up and down (paved), but not at all easy if you are old or crippled or like me, a bit of both. Anyway, this is your typical basic book, don't look for newsy insights, but it does give a general overview.

  • The bible for learning about the geology and natural history of the Canadian Rockies. Totally comprehensive. A bit on the heavy side, however, and perhaps not ideal if you are backpacking and looking to save on weight.

  • This is the one book that covers all aspects of the natural world that is the Canadian Rockies. It's very well written and provides basic information and in-depth coverage, so you can explore a given subject as little or as much as you like.

  • I cannot rave enough about this book. I wandered into a gift shop in Jasper searching for a geological map, but no one knew what that was (I was offered topographic maps by the staff.) Finally, several gift shops later someone suggested this guide. I initially hesitated, since it was more then I had planned to spend. All I wanted was a brief outline of local geology, and I got so much more!

    Absolutely fabulous! Entertaining, comprehensive, beautifully illustrated, authoritative and yet written with a sense of humour. I felt fully prepared to pick mushrooms, face bears, or lecture random hikers on the behaviour of gulls. Worth every penny! I am in awe of Mr. Gadd, and I thank him with all my heart for this gem of a book.

  • An excellent, broadranging book that includes anything and everything about the Canadian Rockies. One suggestion, however, buy the book in Canada. It's available in any regular bookstore up there for $35 Can, which is about $24 US.

  • Gadd's book is an excellent resource for anyone who wants more knowledge and information on the splendor of the Candaian Rockies. Detailed, yet easy reading information is presented on flora, fauna, geology, climate, and hiking.
    In our recent trip to the Canadian Rockies my wife and I referred to it often whether in the car or on a Mt. trail. Whatever bird, flower, or geological formation you wanted to know about, Gadd's book provided all the information.

  • Awesome book. Just returned from vacation there and a young man at one of our stops said it is the bible for the Canadian Rockies. The only problem was that I bought it from a buyer for $40 and found a Goodwill receipt inside!

  • This is a detailed handbook. It contains especially informative details on geology and plants. Perhaps too detailed for the casual user.
