A Hiker's Guide to Art of the Canadian Rockies is an invitation to look at art in a new way.  Hiker and art historian Lisa Christensen takes the art off the gallery wall and presents it in the context of the magnificent locations that inspired its creation.

With trail descriptions and history, interwoven with journal accounts of the artists' adventures, you can discover, or re-discover, the Canadian Rockies through their eyes. From Mount Robson to Mount Assiniboine, follow the footsteps of artists such as Walter J. Phillips, Carl Runggius, Illingworth Kerr, Lawren Harris, and Catharine Robb Whyte, who hiked, were inspired by, and painted the magnificent peaks, hidden gem-coloured lakes, and tranquil alpine meadows of some of the world's most magnificent scenery.
