Canmore and Banff are collectively renowned for their mountain culture, diverse wildlife, and scenes of breathtaking natural splendor. These vibrant mountain communities are also home to exceptional adventurers, artists, thinkers, and writers. For the first time, some of the area’s best-known personalities have contributed essays to a collection of work that promotes this remarkable area like no other book has before.

Author royalties from Imagine This Valley will be donated and placed into a fund for young people from the Bow Valley who wish to pursue writing as a vocation. An initial amount of $2,000 will be placed in trust by RMB | Rocky Mountain Books, and each year, starting in 2016, a $500 grant will be given to a student interested in pursuing their dream of writing.
