Discovery of Paradise Valley Wilcox, Walter Dwight  (American, 1869–1949)

One of the first major works to be written about the mountains of western Canada. Focusing upon the escapades of the Lake Louise Club, a group of relatively inexperienced climbers from Yale University and elsewhere in the eastern United States this volume offers the reader a glimpse not only of the remarkable beauty and grandeur of the Rocky Mountains, but also the danger and rigors these early adventurers experienced nearly every day. 25 Photogravure illustrations from photographs The engraving firm is uncredited but has produced a very beautiful book of photographs of high mountain scenery.
