Graeme Pole #119
(Hazelton, British Columbia, Canada)  
Author photo: Doug McConnery
Mountaineer, photographer, and award-winning writer, Graeme Pole, has ascended 250 peaks in the Canadian Rockies - some greater, mostly lesser. He spent twelve years at Field, BC, and three before that at Lake Louise. His favourite haunts are the front ranges of Banff and Jasper. In his writing and in his mountain travels, Graeme has consistently advocated self-propelled travel, and has spoken out against the incremental urbanization and commercialization of landscapes.

Graeme is the author of four guidebooks: "Canadian Rockies SuperGuide" (now out of print); "Canadian Rockies Explorer"; "Walks and Easy Hikes in the Canadian Rockies"; and "Classic Hikes in the Canadian Rockies".

Graeme's most recent publication is the novel, "Siren Call." He has published one environmental novel, "Healy Park". Graeme has written five history books, including "Summit Tales" - an illustrated history of early mountaineering in the Rockies. Graeme continues with writing. He lives with his family near Hazelton, BC, where he serves as a paramedic and paramedic instructor. Website:
