Culturing Wilderness in Jasper National Park free pdf Adults need playgrounds. In 1907, the Canadian government designated a vast section of the Rocky Mountains as Jasper Forest Park. Tourists now play where Native tribes once lived, fur traders toiled, and Metis families homesteaded. In "Culturing Wilderness in Jasper National Park", I.S. MacLaren and eight other writers unearth the largely unrecorded past of the upper Athabasca River watershed, and bring to light two centuries worth of human history, tracing the evolution of trading routes into the Rockies' largest park. Serious history enthusiasts and those with an interest in Canada's national parks will find a sense of connection in this long-overdue study of Jasper.
