This issue gives a detailed history of the development and implementation of the high angle mountain rescue service in the mountain Parks of Canada: Canadian Rockies, Selkirks, Purcells, etc. This is one of the most active mountain rescue operations in the world, with some of the most varied and challenging conditions found in the mountains.
