Nahanni Then and Now explores the geography and history of the mountainous country drained by the South Nahanni River, based on Lougheed’s observations as a hiker and paddler, and on her thorough research — including interviews and correspondence with the people, and the descendants of the people, who made that history. A journey to the abandoned mining sites of Tungsten, Howard’s Pass, Lened Creek and Union Carbide leads to a tour of the ruins, a history of the Lake and stories of trappers, scientists and climbers who explored the South Nahanni, the Flat, and Glacier Lake near the Cirque of the Unclimbables. It includes a summary of events that led to the expansion of Nahanni Park.
