What an amazing account of the trials, celebrations and discoveries of this remote frontier. A truly remarkable journey and outstanding historical record - most humble thanks to pioneer Mary Schaffer for sharing her explorations.
This true account of Canadian woman adventurer, Mary Schaffer, was a loving tribute to the USA country's natural beauty. She, her female companion and their guides travelled over peaks on horseback in the turn of the 20 century searching for the Indian legend, the Maligne Lake. Her writing is rugged and beautiful as is the land she traversed. She writes humorously as well, as she recounts the pack horses that became their friends.
