Among the Canadian Alps, by Lawrence J. Burpee edited in 1914. Lawrence J. Burpee was a Canadian librarian, historian and author. He published many books and articles mainly related to Canadian history and geography and was the founding editor of the Canadian Geographical Journal. "What is the peculiar charm of that mighty, snow-capped sea of mountains, whose stupendous waves tossed far into the heavens seem ever about to overwhelm the level wheat-fields of Western Canada? The lure of the mountains defies analysis, but it is surely there with its irresistible appeal to all in whom the spirit of romance is not quite dead. It stirs the blood strangely when, far out on the plains of Alberta, you get your first glimpse of the Canadian Alps—a line of white, glittering peaks just above the horizon, infinitely remote and ethereal, something altogether apart from the prosaic world about you of grain and cattle, neat farm-house and unsightly elevator."
