About the Author

A Traveller's Guide to Historic British Columbia is a well-loved classic that has been the curious traveler's bible for more than a decade. Rosemary Neering covers the gold rush towns, old wagon routes and dramatic railway lines carved into mountain ranges. Along the way, she includes the stories of those places and the people who played important roles in shaping the province.

Conveniently divided into regional sections, this incredible historic resource includes chapters on:

  • Vancouver Island
  • Lower Mainland
  • Similkameen/Okanagan/Shuswap
  • West Kootenay/Boundary
  • The Mountain Spine
  • The Interior Plateau
  • The Coast
  • The North.
  • All the hidden treasures from the Gulf Islands all the way to the Alaska Highway are discovered anew through their dramatic histories.

    Rosemary Neering is an acclaimed expert on British Columbia and the award-winning author of Wild West Women, Down the Road and Backroading Vancouver Island.
