BACK IN STOCK! We're very happy to have been able to get First Nations of the Plains back in stock, which traces the history and stories of many aboriginal cultures in the plains of North America.


We have recently started carrying the first two books in George Mercer's Canadian fiction/mystery series in which each book is set in one of Canada's national parks. George is a former park warden who's worked in six national parks across the country. The first book, Dyed in the Green, is set in the Cape Breton Highlands. The second book is Wood Buffalo. The third book, releasing next year, will be set in Jasper National Park.

We're now distributing the books put out by the Burgess Shale Geoscience Foundation, including: A Geoscience Guide to the Burgess Shale and Climate Change and Landscape in the Canadian Rocky Mountains.

The Canadian Rockies Annual is a beautifully designed new magazine published by Banff's Crowfoot media - including articles on history, adventure, photography, and more that span the mountain parks from Waterton to Jasper.

Dear Calgary: Letters to the Next Generation of Leaders is an anthology published by the Calgary Chamber in which prominent Calgarians share their advice on leadership.

50 Percent of Mountaineering is Uphill is the story of Jasper's Willi Pfisterer, a legend in the field of mountaineering and safety in the Rocky Mountains.
