about

A sumptuous land, rich in diversity and culture, British Columbia is world renowned for its awe inspiring beauty, its multitude of flora and fauna and its many cosmopolitan cities and charming towns, all steeped in history. This book explores the provinces' beginnings, from their initial discovery to when George Vancouver first claimed the land for Britain in 1797 and its subsequent growth. Delving into the history of the First Nations and their settlements right through to modern times, the bustling and vibrant city of Vancouver, the genteel capital of Victoria and the little visited, yet magical towns of the outlying wilderness, complemented by stunning photography throughout, this book charts the changing face of British Columbia, from its first European settlers to the present day.
