Highlighted by brilliant photographs, the colourful stories of British Columbia's history leap off the pages of this beautiful book. BC became a colony in 1858, and this book celebrates its 150 years with a selection of vignettes about objects from our collective past and the people intimately involved with them. This entertaining book captures the essence of British Columbia and the diversity of its people and landscapes. Among the stories are a dozen selections from the Peoples History Project: personal stories and short family histories from around the province. This book also includes Evergreen Playland, a DVD of BC tourism travelogues from the 1950s and 1960s.
