The Collector’s Edition of Tales from the Great Divide, the compilation of stories about the history of Canada’s Great Divide Trail and the Great Divide Trail Association was launched at the GDTA’s AGM in Calgary in September 2019. By mid-November, all thirty copies had been sold. Jenny Feick, the book’s compiler and editor, supported by Jeff Gruttz, Dave Higgins, Mary Jane Kreisel and Lani Smith and desktop publisher Louise Beinhauer have been busy preparing a Second Edition that will be published this spring. The Second Edition will correct errors found in the first edition and add new material. It will be available in both print and pdf form. Anyone who purchased the Collector’s Edition will receive a pdf of the Second Edition.
If you are interested in purchasing a copy of the Second Edition of Tales from the Great Divide, Vignettes on the Origins and Early History of Canada’s Great Divide Trail and the Great Divide Trail Association, please contact Jenny Feick at firstname.lastname@example.org.
