Frontier Guide to Enchanted Banff and Lake Louise: Frontier Book no.10 - $15 (Nanoose Bay)

Frontier Guide to Enchanted Banff and Lake Louise: Frontier Book no.10
In this book Frank Anderson tells the story and the history of Banff and Lake Louise.
Lake Louise was originally called Ho-run-num-nay, by the Stoney-Nakoda people, which roughly translates to “the Lake of Little Fishes.” They and other First Nations tribes subsisted off it for many thousands of years, but it is largely unmentioned in recorded history until 1884 – when a settlement was built there by the Canadian Pacific Railway Company.
Banff National Park was created a year later in 1885, becoming Canada’s first national park and Lake Louise was a designated area within it. During that period the city was known as Holt and the lake was known as the Emerald Lake.
