An eclectic collection of 11 global walks and hikes, the book includes destinations on every continent but Antarctica. From one-day saunters to two-week odysseys, readers will find the in-depth story behind each trail, combined with detailed maps and a visual feast of archival and contemporary images from contributors located around the world. Climb the Stairs of Repentance to the top of Mount Sinai, the Holy Peak of Moses, or retrace the journey of the stampeders of the Klondike Gold Rush as you scale the Golden Stairs of the Chilkoot Trail. Catch the "Long Look" across El Despoblado as you stand at the South Rim of the Chisos Mountains in Texas. Walk in the Dreaming tracks of the local Arrente as you trek the Larapinta Trail along the spine of Central Australia's ancient MacDonnell Ranges. Or follow delightful paths through sheep paddocks and woodlands filled with bluebells and birdsong along Great Britain's Cotswold Way. But it isn't all about the hikes and the history. There is plenty of practical information on Internet resources and recommended reading along with suggestions on what to do before or after the hike. Learn about local fauna, regional food specialties and unique customs - like the sensuous rituals linked with maté tea in Patagonia or the grizzly tradition of the SourToe Cocktail in Dawson City, Yukon. So lace up those boots and get moving. Or put your feet up and read all about it from the cozy comfort of your living room. The choice is entirely yours.

The region stretching from northern Colorado to southern Alberta and from the Rockies to the western Dakotas is the land of the Cheyenne and the Blackfeet, the Crow and the Sioux. Its grasslands and river valleys have nurtured human cultures for thousands of years. On cave walls, glacial boulders, and riverside cliffs, Native people recorded their ceremonies, vision quests, battles, and daily activities in the petroglyphs and pictographs they created on stone surfaces. Some sites were clearly intended for communal use; others clearly mark the occurrence of a private spiritual encounter. Elders often used rock art, such as complex depictions of hunting, to teach traditional knowledge and skills. Other sites document the medicine powers and brave deeds of famous warriors.

The Columbia Icefield is the largest sub-polar accumulation of glacial ice in North America. Because it is possible to drive to the second largest glacier flowing out of the Columbia Icefield, it is the best-known ice age feature in Canada and a remarkably popular tourist destination. From this amazing and accessible ice mass we can learn a great deal about how water shaped our landscape in the past and how it will shape our civilization in the future. Despite a century of accelerating recession, the Columbia Icefield is still an incredible geographical feature. It is a high basin of accumulated snow and ice that presently straddles 223 square kilometres, some 86 square miles, of the Great Divide, the stupendous mountain wall that marks the boundary between the provinces of British Columbia and Alberta. It also straddles Banff and Jasper National Parks, contributing significantly to their designations as United Nations World Heritage Sites. Written by one of Canada's most respected experts on water and water-related climate processes, this remarkable book offers a clear and concise visual overview of the geological history and features of the Columbia Icefield; an outline of human presence in the glaciated landscapes of the mountain West; and a breathtaking photographic tour of one of the world's most amazing landscapes.

The second edition of More Scrambles in the Canadian Rockies contains 49 new routes, in addition to the 65 of the first edition, along with a large collection of full-colour photos and maps. The regions of Waterton, The Castle and Kananaskis are covered comprehensively. Between this edition and Alan Kane’s Scrambles in the Canadian Rockies, all of the major, named peaks in Waterton National Park are outlined. The Castle too is thoroughly covered, including a handful of terrific ascents around Middle Kootenay Pass and a new section for multi-peak baggers titled The Ultimate High-Level Ridgewalks. Several scrambles in other areas (Crowsnest, Banff, Highway 93 North and Yoho) are likewise new to this edition. Andrew Nugara outlines several different routes to each summit and includes alternative and easier descents. Encompassing a range of levels of difficulty, the second edition of More Scrambles in the Canadian Rockies will appeal to anyone familiar with the first edition of this book and Alan Kane’s best-selling, classic guidebook, as well as to hikers looking for a more challenging route to the top of a mountain. In addition to route descriptions, the book contains general information on scrambling, suggested trips for specific conditions, details about each specific area, and single-day, multi-peak trips.
