Detailed Product Description
Canada, 2000, 1st edition. 62 + 49 pages, many photos. In English and Japanese. Published by the CCanadian Alpine Club and the Japanese Alpine Club. During the Golden Age of mountaineering in the Canadian Rockies it was not uncommon for first ascents to be attained by non-Canadians. In fact, it was more likely that a peak would be climbed by a European or an American than a Canadian. The first ascent of Mount Alberta in Jasper National Park is no different in that regard. However, the legend that followed, and the international relationship that was formed after that first ascent was very different. As told in Robert William Sandford's book Called by This Mountain: The Legend of the Silver Ice Axe and Early Climbing History of Mount Alberta, the story, the people and the objects involved push the physical, mental and international boundaries involved in mountaineering. Large hardcover with dust jacket, Fine-New.

Large hardcover with DJ. Extra Postage will be requested for Priority Mail or Foreign Mail.
