“The Canadian Rocky Mountain system, with its unnumbered and unknown natural sanctuaries for generations yet unborn, is a national asset. In time we ought to become a nation of mountaineers, loving our mountains with the patriot’s passion.” This was the hope of Winnipeg journalist and one of the co-founders of The Alpine Club of Canada, Elizabeth Parker, in 1906.

One hundred years later, the Manitoba Section of The Alpine Club continues to foster a love of the mountains among prairie-dwellers. In this collection of stories, Manitobans tell about their love of mountaineering, rock climbing, ice climbing, and adventuring with The Alpine Club of Canada.
