Sunset Canada - British Columbia and Beyond, Published in 1918.


Cat No.:   CA0045:

The original title page of this book carries the self description: An Account of its Settlement; Its Progress from the Early Days to the Present, including a Review of the Hudson's Bay Company; Its Amazing Variety of Climate; Its Charm of Landscape; Its Unique Cities and Attractive Towns and Their Industries; A Survey of the Different Peoples to be Found There, including the Japanese and Doukhobors; An Analysis of What it Offers in Opportunity to the Home Seeker, the Agriculturist, the Business Man, the Sportsman and the Traveler.

The only thing to add to this is that its author, an American, was writing a travelogue mainly for his fellow Americans and his adventures took place in the years just prior to the book publication in 1918. As well as providing an easy to follow potted history of the establishment of the province in the early chapters, he describes a British Columbia which was just beginning to bloom into the great province we know today, before the great natural wonders and resources had been significantly altered by the pressure of a growing population.

This book will provide an insight into what it was like to live in BC just at the beginning of its real expansion. It contains 320 pages, a useful full color map of British Columbia and 56 illustrations, 8 of which are in colour. The text is fully searchable using the features of Acrobat Reader™ or any other equivalent PDF reader.
