THE HISTORY OF THE CANADIAN WEST #2
Volume 11 Number 4.
A collection of ten true articles on the early days in Canada's West, The History of the Canadian West is a valuable addition to any library. Exciting accounts of people, places, and events in Alberta, British Columbia, and the Northwest Territories prior to 1900 can be found here, e.g. the story of Emily Murphy, Canada's first woman senator, an account of the founding of the Bluebell Mine in British Columbia, the rags to riches story of the Dunsmuirs of Vancouver Island, the history of Canmore, Alberta, a tale of the "fool's gold" of Mosquito Creek, and an exciting story from the early days of the North West Mounted Police.
The articles in the collection are by different authors, many of whom write from personal reminiscences or first-hand experience. All are accompanied by enlightening illustrations: maps, photographs, or drawings. This collection of factual and well-written anecdotes of life in the early Canadian West will satisfy both curricular and leisure needs of the junior or senior high school student.
