Rating: 0 vote(s).

Andy Russell has been a trapper, cowboy, bronco-buster, trail guide, grizzly hunter, nature photographer and filmmaker, lecturer, and fighter for the environment.
This is the story of his adventures as a trail guide in the "standing-on-end country" of southern Alberta and British Columbia, and into the Yukon and Alaska. He recounts his experiences shepherding rich "sports" through the primeval wilderness in search of fish and game, often finding more than they bargained for. Above all, the book is about the immense changes that have transformed life in the Canadian Rockies over the past century.
Memoirs of a Mountain Man is a lively, sensitively-observed account of outdoors life in some of the most awesome landscapes on the planet.

"Lively prose that creates vivid images of the characters, adventures and landscapes of his memories."

- Hamilton Spectator

"There are wonderful moments in this book: heart stopping confrontations with grizzlies, screwball characters ... and near fatal slides down icy mountains."

- Kitchener Waterloo Record

"It will leave you with a fresh mind and a peaceful feeling."

- The Ottawa Citizen
