Trent Ernst has been researching and writing the BC and Alberta Backroad Mapbooks for the better part of the last decade. In 2008, he started researching the entire Backroad Mapbook series, save for Quebec books. Trent has an uncanny knack for digging up often unheard of trails and places to explore.
Trent was born in Rosthern, Saskatchewan because his hometown of Waldheim, found 25 km (15 miles)down the road, was too small to have a hospital. The evening he was born, the townsfolk celebrated with a big party on Main Street, and fireworks lit up the evening sky.
It was only later he learned that it was the simply the annual 4H festival. Since that time, his life has been inexplicably linked with cows.
