Bruce PattonIn Great Lodges of the Canadian Rockies, author Christine Barnes and photographers Fred Pflughoft and David Morris have collaborated to provide a unique and original perspective on the historic grand hotels and rustic lodges of Canada's mountain national parks. As she did in her award-winning book Great Lodges of the West in the United States, Christine highlights the visionary managers and architects who were involved in the creation and evolution of such venerable hotels as the Banff Springs, Jasper Park Lodge, Chateau Lake Louise and the Prince of Wales. She also presents little-known stories about the log lodges, like Emerald Lake, Num-Ti-Jah, Mount Assiniboine, Shadow Lake, Skoki and Twin Falls Chalet, and the colorful characters who built and operated them. The book includes original architectural renderings of these hotels and lodges, many never previously published, and the contemporary photographs are quite simply some of the finest ever taken of these heritage buildings.
