Detailed Product Description
New York, McClelland and Stewart, 1978, 1st edition. 270 pp, endpaper maps. Green cloth hardcover with slightly worn dust jacket. A Fine copy.

Memoir of a Canadian Park Ranger. As a park warden in the national parks of Canada's Rocky Mountains, Sid Marty came to know that beautiful and treacherous landscape as few men or women do. He was a mountain climber, rescue team member, firefighter, wildlife custodian, and adviser to tourists, adventurers, and people passing through. At all times, he was an acute observer of human and animal behavior. In these pages he records with wry wit and bitter insight true stories of heroism and folly drawn from life in the high country.

Marty writes vividly about a land and a way of life that are increasingly endangered. The visceral energy of his prose compels attention. This is a compulsive, alarming, and often hilarious read.
