SID MARTY's work has been published in periodicals including Equinox, Canadian Geographic, Reader's Digest, Canadian Business, and National Geographic Traveler. His prose and poetry have been included in a number of literary periodicals and anthologies and his books about life in the mountains and foothills of Canada's west have been consistent bestsellers. Sid Marty lives and writes in the foothills of southwestern Alberta.
"In prose as clear as the mountain air, Marty relates one
marvellous story after another, drawing on his more than 25 years
experience in the Rocky Mountains."
"Marty's artistry is such that the stories in Switchbacks seem to have emerged from the mountains themselves....Some chapters will have your adrenalin coursing and your heart pounding; one or two others may make you weep. All of them will thrill you with the concrete vitality of landscape and language."
