Detailed Product Description


SIGNED by Fred Beckey

Canada, 1987, 1st edition. 156 pp, 130 color photos. A magnificent history and photo description of the Bugaboos. Large-format hardcover, DJ, Fine.

Illustrated with color photographs by Glen Boles, Ed Cooper, Scott Flavelle, J.F. Garden, Byron Harmon, Daryl Hatten, Roger W. Laurilla, James B. Maitre, Rob Rohn, John Simpson, Uldis Veideman, and Jum Weston. Glossary of mountaineering terms. Endnotes. Bibliography.

Known around the world by those who seek adventure, geographically the Bugaboos are a unique, small part of Canada's western Cordillera, of British Columbia's Selkirk Mountains, of the Purcell Ranges. In this book, the meaning of the mystic name is revealed through story, photographs and illustrations of events which have taken place. Man, in discovering this alpine playground, built by the quirks of nature has risen to the challenge of pitting himself against the Bugaboo environment.

With over 130 photographs from Canadian and American photographers, with illustrations by Don Graydon and Glen Boles, and an introduction written by Fred Beckey, this book brings together stories of adventures we wish we could all experience. The mountains remain some of the last bastions of nature, and with nature remains man's final challenge. 'The Bugaboos - An Alpine History' can fulfill the desires of those who for many reasons have been unable to go where the heart leads. We are all mountaineers and the Bugaboos beckon.'

Due to the large size and weight of this book, extra postage will be requested for Priority Mail or International Mail.
