Rate this:
In this Banff history book, Eleanor Luxton, the native daughter of one of Banff¿s pioneers, presents us with a labour of love ¿ a comprehensive history of Banff National Park from its geological birth, through its exploration and settlement, to its growth as Canada¿s first National Park. This story of Rocky Mountains Park is a sensitive portrayal of the natural and human history of the Banff area, weaving together the romantic adventure of the earliest exploration and settlement with the realities of World Wars, depressions, and government influences. It will most surely command rapt attention from both the casual reader and the historian.
