Lizzie Rummel Baroness of the Canadian Rockies by Ruth Oltmann Release Date: 5/1/1983 ISBN 9780921102397 6 x 9 inches 160 pages paperback $9.95 (CAD)
Elizabeth von Rummel, born into aristocracy in turn-of-the-century Germany, came with her family to live on a ranch in the Alberta foothills, when working on it became the alternative to life in her World War One-ravaged homeland. Then, when most people were settling into middle age, Lizzie struck out on another challange; for 32 years she ran backcountry lodges like Skoki and Assiniboine, for which she received the Order of Canada and the friendship of hundreds of people whose lives were enhanced by her special charm.
