DOUGLAS & MCINTYRE | March 1, 2001 | Hardcover

Sto: Lo-coast Salish Historical Atlas is rated 5 out of 5 by 1.
THIS GROUNDBREAKING HISTORICAL ATLAS, a best-seller when originally published in 2001, was the first produced by a Canadian aboriginal organization. It presents a superbly researched, comprehensive overview of the physical and social history of the traditional territory of the Sto:lo Nation. Sto:lo means "river," and the people take their name from the giant "river of rivers" (now called the Fraser) that flows through their lands. Using material drawn from the larger Coast Salish region, the atlas covers south-west British Columbia and northwest Washington State-including metropolitan Vancouver. The 86 full-colour maps, most of them double-page spreads, are enhanced by archival photographs and explanatory text. Covering an astonishing range of themes, the atlas makes a significant contribution to cross-cultural understanding and the advancement of knowledge.
