Note "In the foregoing pages are to be found brief descriptions of the geological formations and illustrations of representatives of the great variety of landforms developed by mountain uplift, faulting and folding and fashioned by subsequent weathering and stream and glacial agencies. The alpine grandeur of the Rocky and Selkirk Mountains with their lower slopes covered with forests of spruce, balsam and Douglas fir, and their towering peaks ornamented with extensive snowfields, cascading glaciers and associated cirques, rock-basin lakes, waterfalls and canyons make this vast wonderland the alpine paradise of the Western Hemisphere. As has been enthusiactically said, "a month spent amid these surroundings is worth a thousand doctors and psychoanalysts"--Epilogue, p. 36. Historical publication digitized from print in 2013.
