A fascinating collection of concise stories about twenty-one courageous, independent, and diverse women who shaped the history of Vancouver Island.

From the lush rainforest of Clayoquot Sound to the bustling city streets of Victoria, Vancouver Island has been home to an astounding number of inspiring women. On Their Own Terms: True Stories of Trailblazing Women of Vancouver Island celebrates the achievements of twenty-one amazing heroines working in multiple fields, from world-famous artists to social activists to groundbreaking scientists and quietly defiant labourers. The diverse women in this engaging new collection include:

  • pioneer and midwife Tuwa 'hwiye Tusium Gollelim, Mary Ann Gyves;
  • world-renowned algae botanist Josephine Tilden;
  • undiscovered aviatrix Lilian Bland;
  • Vancouver Island's first African-Canadian teacher, Emma Stark; and

Whether you are an entrepreneur, an educator, a rebellious spirit, or an armchair adventurer, these incredible women who thrived on Vancouver Island will captivate you.
