Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Athabasca River originates from the Columbia Glacier of the Columbia Icefield in Jasper National Park in Alberta, Canada. The impressive and scenic Athabasca Falls is located upstream about 30 km (19 mi) from the Jasper townsite. In Woods Cree, the word a apask w means "[where] there are plants one after another," likely a reference to the spotty vegetation along the river. Sekani, Shuswap, Kootenay, Salish, Stoney and Cree tribes hunted and fished along the river prior to the European colonization.show more
