Come out with your friends and join us for a fantastic social evening with special guests, authors David Crerar, Harry Crerar & Bill Maurer, who will present stories from their book, "The Glorious Mountains of Vancouverís North Shore: a Peak Baggerís Guide" (RMB: Rocky Mountain Books). Few Vancouverites know of the natural beauty and adventure that lies within them, or even their names and history. They will discuss some of the history and secrets of the peaks, including Indigenous names, cultural significance, and uses; logging and mining; watersheds and waterfalls; old growth trees; plane crashes; cached whisky; first ascents; name origins; plants; mushrooms; wildlife; and, above all, fun and adventure.​
