Rob Wood
Oct 24 @ 19:00

Rob Wood’s book At Home In Nature: A Life of Unknown Mountains and Deep Wilderness is the compelling story of a family’s life among the rugged landscapes of BC’s Coast Mountains, converting youthful ideals, raw land and a passion for the outdoors into a practical off-grid homestead. Rob grew up on the edge of the Yorkshire Moors, where he developed a preoccupation with rock climbing. After studying architecture at the London Architectural Association School, he moved to Montreal and then Calgary, where he became a pioneer of ice climbing and posted numerous first ascents in the Rockies during the 1970’s.
