Those Earlier Hills
Reminiscences 1928 to 1961
About the Book
Few men have been as set on isolated adventures and as passionate about the wild landscape of Canada as R.M. Patterson. He spent over 30 years in exploration, from northern rivers such as the Nahanni and the Liard, to the foothills of the Rockies, and he recorded his discoveries in vivid words and breathtaking photographs along the way. His memorable articles are presented as a collection by TouchWood Editions.
“[R.M. Patterson] was more than a paddler of northern rivers; for over thirty years he travelled extensively throughout the West and wrote fascinating chronicles of those experiences. Those Earlier Hills, a collection of stories representing Patterson’s contributions to The Beaver over several decades, will enthral and entertain anyone interested in armchair exploration of the Canadian wilderness.” —Canada’s History
