I did it! My book Park Bagger – Adventures in the Canadian National Parks will be published by Rocky Mountain Books in April 2021. Here’s the blub:
"An inspiring collection of thrilling personal adventures and stunning photographs sharing the incredible diversity and profound beauty of Canada’s national parks.
"Explorer Marlis Butcher has “bagged” all of the Canadian national parks. In her quest to visit and get to know the parks, Marlis canoed, kayaked, mountain-biked, backpacked, hiked, snowshoed, snorkelled, and trekked by whatever means of travel she could devise.
"During her park explorations she’s encountered grizzly and black bears, polar bears, wolves, and wolverines. She’s survived incredible storms, falls off mountainsides, and sinking boats. Marlis has investigated uncharted lands and travelled down quaint country roads. In Park Bagger, she shares her adventures, with the objective to encourage others to explore the national parks and to protect Canada’s vast wilderness."
Thank-you for your courses and for confirming that I can write and that people are interested in my stories.
