One Woman's Life in the Foothills and Mountains of Western CanadaBook - 2015
An inspiring biography of an adventurous woman who grew up on a small ranch in southern Alberta during the Depression. In spite of many hardships, she and her family became some of the most important mountain outfitters in Banff and Yoho National Park. June's strength of character was forged by living in the wilderness west of Turner Valley as a young girl with her mother and her stepfather. She learned early to live in harmony with her environment and became a strongly determined woman capable of meeting the challenges of being an artist, horseback guide, businesswoman, wife, and mother. June saw early years that were marked by loneliness but also by close family ties that defined how she would chart her adult life.
