Fraser Gold 1858!: The Founding of British Columbia Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

A chronicle of the pivotal events of 1858 when gold strikes along the Fraser River led to the transformation of the Hudson Bay Company's "New Caledonia" wilderness into the crown colony of British Columbia. The author tells the story largely in the words of those who were there--miners and prospectors, merchants and entrepreneurs, officers and statesmen, and the media of the day. Contains b&w illustrations.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

The year 1858 proved to be the most eventful in western Canada as waves of American miners made their way to the Fraser River country, joining hundreds of Indians, Vancouver Island colonists, and former fur trade employees in the gold fields. The newcomers were some of the earliest pioneers of British Columbia.
