But of late it has been recognized that if the generalizations that properly characterize broader studies are to be valid, they must often be based upon local sources that are frequently the only record of past events, changed conditions and vanished life-styles. The great number of local and regional studies now being published will result eventually in a much better and more perceptive general history of British Columbia, and, indeed, of Western Canada. 'Metis Outpost' is a prime example of such a source. Only its author could have preserved it for posterity. It is a little jewel in the treasure house of history." - W. Kaye Lamb, Former Dominion Archivist and National Librarian of Canada. Faintest wear. Bright, clean and unmarked. Wonderful copy.
