An illustrated historycelebrating the 100th anniversary of this historic, working horse ranchlocated along the eastern slopes of the Canadian Rockies.

Thestory of the Ya Ha Tinda and its evolution into the only continuouslyoperating federal government horse ranch in Canada is much more than thestory of the people who worked and lived there. Its ancient history isan amalgam of geological evolution, with archaeological evidence ofancient indigenous people’s use of the land for over 9,400 years and abiophysical inventory of flora and fauna unique to this particularlandscape. So important is this small footprint, that it has been thesource of a constant struggle for control between governments andspecial interest groups since the early 1900s, when the BrewsterBrothers Transfer Company first obtained a grazing lease in the area forraising and breaking horses for their guiding and outfitting businessin Banff and Lake Louise.

This unique bookcovers the 100 years since the inception of the ranch: its challenges tosurvive intact to the 2017 centennial celebration and the stories ofthe men and women who worked and survived on the spread as they foughtthe elements and the politics to keep it as a “home place” for both thewarden service and Parks Canada.
