Biographical, but mainly a collection of vignettes of memorable episodes of Engler's experiences in the Canadian Rockies. Born in Switzerland in 1915, Engler moved to Canada in 1939 taking a job as a mountaineering guide and ski instructor at Sunshine and Lake Louise, later settling in Banff where he became a celebrated raconteur of the earlier days of guiding climbs and skiing in the Canadian Rockies. This book relates Engler's stories of guiding, skiing, encounters with wild animals, filmmaking and acting. There are seven pages on Engler's climbs and experiences with Frank Smythe in the Canadian Rockies.
