GOLD CREEKS AND GHOST TOWNS: East Kootenay, Boundary, West Kootenay, Okanagan and Similkameen

Summerland: Canada West, 1971. Later Printing. Soft cover. Very Good. Item #xxx037

3rd printing. 4to pictorial wraps. 183pp. Most attractively illustrated with vintage photos and the excellent drawings and remarkable hand-drawn maps of the author. Barlee was publisher and author of the much sought Canada West Magazine, a schoolteacher, and later MP of his riding in BC. He produced a TV series on BC ghost towns and mining camps for CBC. I believe Barlee traveled to all the places he wrote about and researched them professionally. Your bookseller corresponded with Barlee around this time. Vg copy. Slight surface wear and small ink mark on upper front cover. Former owner's signature on title page. I have always admired Barlee's choice of paper used in printing, and his choice of stock for his attractive covers.

Price: $21.50
