How did the world discover the Rockies? To find out, Guy Clarkson traces the footsteps of the earliest European visitors who arrived by canoe, horse and dog team to expand their fur trading empires to the Pacific. Clarkson joins modern-day adventurers and historians to relive how the earliest visitors revelled in a land of riches. It's a journey by dog team, locomotive, canoe and climbing party to the roof of the Canadian Rockies. From there, Clarkson can almost see forever, and that's the problem. The future is cause for concern.
