Stoked On Waterfalls: A Guide to Alberta's Roadside and Short Hike Waterfalls is Volume 1 in a series of books that I aim to complete which document every waterfall in Alberta. Volume 1 documents 208 waterfalls that are located 500 meters or less from any public road within the boundaries of Alberta. Writing this book has been a pleasure and I am super excited to be able to share all of these wonderful places with like-minded waterfall chasers. I hope that everyone that reads this book enjoys discovering these places as much as I have.
Over this last year, I've received a lot of questions on how to purchase my book. I'm excited to announce that Stoked On Waterfalls: Volume 1 can be now purchased in two different ways. The first way is through my website and the second way is through third party sellers such as Amazon or Chapters.
Books sold on my website are books that I have printed locally myself. These books are printed on much better paper which allow each waterfall photo to be more vivid. These books are a bit more expensive but are better quality than what would buy on Amazon, Chapters or any other third party. If you would like to buy an autographed book, please click on the "Payment and Shipping" link at the top (if on a PC) or clicking the three lines at the top left (if on mobile).
Each book is also personally signed by me. Please email me at email@example.com if you have any questions!
The reason for the difference in quality is because books sold on Amazon or Chapters are produced by Print-On-Demand printing. Although they contain the exact same content as books printed by me, I do not have any control over the quality of these books. However, the are a great option if you are look for something more economical.
The book on the left of this photo is a book printed locally and the book to the right is a book printed from Amazon for comparison.
The paperback edition is now available in Canada at Amazon.ca, Chapters Indigo, and in the United States at Amazon.com, Barnes And Noble, Walmart and a few other sellers.
Barnes & Noble
Volume 1 is available through Kobo, Kindle, Smashwords, and Apple Books. It can also be bought through Kobo on Chapters Indigo website.
Georeferenced Avenza maps for the entire book are available for purchase and can be downloaded right to your smart phone! These maps will allow you to find the parking areas and waterfalls using your phone without any data service or wifi! The maps can either be downloaded individually or in bundles by geographic region. I have also bundled the maps for the entire book! If you are interested check out the links below and browse my maps in the Avenza store.
My name is Jason Walchuck and I am an avid hiker, scrambler, fisherman, explorer, and waterfall chaser. I was born and raised in Calgary Alberta, went to the University of Saskatchewan to get my Geology Degree, and I currently live and work in Fort McMurray, Alberta. On my days off, I'm out in the Canadian wilderness hiking and exploring. One day about 5 years ago, I had a crazy idea to write a book on waterfalls for Alberta. It seemed like an unreachable goal at first but I started with a few sentences and a few photos and now here we finally are.
