0889223181 382 pages. Bibliography. Extensive footnotes. Black and white illustrations. "Previously ignored, the war between the 'people of the land' and the colonial government remains of utmost significance in today's world of unsettled First Nations' land claims. After the war of 1863 aboriginal land continued to be alienated, and Native jurisdiction eroded, throughout British Columbia - leaving an inequity which remains unresolved almost a century and a half later." - from back cover. Clean, bright and unmarked with very light wear. A high quality copy. May shock readers who think of area history in terms of only fishing, logging and mining.

2 Annie York; Richard Daly; Chris Arnett They write their dreams on the rock forever: Rock writings of the Stein River Valley of British Columbia

"Describes, among many other things, the solitary spiritual meditations of young people in the mountains, a form of education once essential to all those who wished to succeed in life with their particular talents... Opens a discussion of some of the issues in rock research that relate to 'notating' and 'writing' on the landscape, around the world and through the millennia. This landmark publication presents a well-researched hypothesis to explain the evolution of symbolic or iconic writing from sign language, trail signs and from the geometric and iconic imagery of the dreams and visions of shamans and neophyte hunters." - from dust jacket. Clean, bright and unmarked with negligible wear. A beautiful copy of this interesting work.
