The Three Sisters Bar and Hotel

A landmark novel of the Canadian West from one of Canada’s most accomplished writers, at once sweeping and intimate, bursting with heart, wit, and larger-than-life characters whose sheer brio rivals the dazzling and dangerous Rocky Mountains.


"an amiable trail ride, with side trips into history and Stoney-Nakoda legends, in the good company of guides, scientists and horse wranglers, dilettantes and debutantes, interned prisoners, military personnel, coal miners and a host of immigrant settlers.
