Take a breath of fresh mountain air and feel the magic of an historical Canadian landmark in Tales from the Canadian Rockies. You’ll meet a host of unforgettable characters like botanist David Douglas, after whom the Douglas fir is named, and geologist James Hector, whose unruly horse is forever commemorated in the names of Kicking Horse River and Pass. You’ll also experience the hunger and hardships of artist Paul Kane and indomitable Mrs. Lane who waded across no fewer than 17 meltwater rivers in one day.
