Icefields is a story of adventure and discovery that unfolds amidst the stunning beauty of the Canadian Rockies. Presented within the frame of a tourist guidebook, this novel records life in the mountains, as time and the coming of the railroad slowly transform the settlement of Jasper from a place of myth and legend to a modern tourist town. Exhaustively researched, this novel blends geology and poetry, fact and fiction, history and imagination. For all who have visited the Canadian Rockies, Icefields is a chance to capture a piece of that magical atmosphere and bring it home, and for those who haven’t, Icefields is chance to explore this vast territory.
