Pat Morrow unveils hidden world in new book

Renowned Canadian Mountaineer at the St. Eugene Literature Series Feb.15

One of Canada’s most famous mountaineers is taking to the lectern at the latest Friday Literature Series at St. Eugene resort, Friday, Feb. 15.

Known as a riveting speaker, Pat Morrow will be presenting his latest book “Searching For Tao Canyon.”

Morrow is an adventure photographer based in Invermere, B.C. and has worked on magazine, book and corporate assignments, as well as shooting video documentaries worldwide for the past 35 years.

He began a collaboration with Jeremy Schmidt that ranged from coverage of canyoneering, back country skiing and mountain culture stories, to launching out with their wives on a seven-month overland journey around the Himalaya, resulting in the book “Himalayan Passage.”

Pat was the first to climb the highest peak on all seven continents (as documented in his book Beyond Everest), and received the Order of Canada for his photographic and exploratory work.

He and his wife, Baiba, have won nine national magazine awards, and they now concentrate on volunteer efforts for a local environmental organization called Wildsight.

His latest book is “Searching for Tao Canyon” with Rocky Mountain Books.

The book chronicles in photography and text a decade’s worth of exploration in the subterranean world of the American desert.

The presentation/discussion starts at 7:30 Feb. 15, 2019, and is free. To join Pat for a special Chef’s dinner (limited to 10 — $49 including gratuity) please call St. Eugene at 250-420-2000 for a reservation.
