about

Jane Stevenson's new book, 'A Trail of Two Telegraphs,' is a fascinating collection of historic tales that portray the strong pioneering spirit of BC's rugged North from Prince George to Prince Rupert. Stevenson writes of Perry Collins's dream, in 1864, of connecting North America to Europe by telegraph. She introduces us to Captain Charles East, whose mission it was to recover Japanese fire balloons in Northern BC during the Second World War. Sheshares the adventures of iconic characters such as Jean-Jacques Caux, Cataline, an intrepid businessman and obstinate mule driver, and Charles Hoetzky, who journeyed by foot and dog sled from Fort Edmonton to Fort Simpson in 1872.
