Fresh off the press Rogers Pass maps!

Much appreciation goes out to Paul Verrall and Hemlock Printers of Burnaby, BC for their excellent work and pro service.

A big thank you goes out to John Baldwin for his major support during this entire journey; this wouldn't have happened as soon or gone as smoothly without it. Please take a moment to check out his inspiring work at JohnBaldwin.ca

The maps are beautiful. Very happy with the run, think you're gonna love them!

You do remember that every book backer gets a FREE MAP don't you? Yes! So stoked to make this happen for you all. Thank you for your support to make this dream a reality.

Books are estimated to arrive tomorrow!

The sorting and packaging of your rewards will be handled promptly and then the deliveries will begin! We're set to roll on shipping right from the home with a Canada Post business account as well as all of the packaging and supplies needed to deliver your books as soon as possible. You will receive updates as books are shipped.

For Pickup in Revelstoke, as soon as your rewards are available for pickup, you will receive an email update so you can grab your goods!

Many thanks to Bruno Long for the captivating cover shot! Bruno's image appears simultaneously on the cover of the book and the map. Incredible!

Happy Holidays all!
