The West Beyond the West
A History of British ColumbiaBook - 1996
Barman begins her history with a description of native societies in the 18th century, and the changes effected by the arrival of Europeans. Subsequent chapters discuss the fur trade, the gold rush, English colonization, the Canadian confederation, and the trans-Canada railroad. Throughout, she focuses less on history made by the leaders in government and business and more on the ways in which ordinary people influenced the province.
