Raven and the Mountaineer: Exploration of the St. Elias Mountains
by Alford, Monty

Raven and the Mountaineer: Exploration of the St. Elias Mountains 
Front Cover
Back Cover

  From first sightings by explorers like Bering, Cook and Vancouver to assents of Canada's highest peaks, the story of the St. Elias Mountains is an exciting one. The Raven and the Mountaineer takes readers up to the summits and into the valleys of this very special part of the world.

Author Monty Alford combines historical explorations and personal experiences to give a glimpse into the rugged beauty of this isolated region. Through many expeditions, including one as a guide to a National Film Board of Canada team filming the first ascent of Mt. Kennedy by the late Senator Robert Kennedy, the author has been privileged to spend several collective months in the sanctuary of the St. Elias. Alford calls upon the voice of the raven to share the narrative, introducing each chapter and providing a sense of the external performance one experiences in this mountain world.

About the Author: By vocation a federal water surveyor, but by avocation a wilderness and mountain guide, Monty Alford has spent more than sixty years pursuing mountaineering activities. He is a Member of the Order of Canada and recipient of the Antarctic Medal and the Queen's Medal. Monty is currently enjoying retirement in Whitehorse, Yukon.
