Experience the BC and Alberta Peace Region as never before!
300 historic photographs, maps and illustrations brought to the printed page for the first time! Discover the exciting history of this unique northern region: explorers and First Nations, homesteaders and paddle wheelers. From horse to automobile and from lamp to electric light, this collectors' edition tells the amazing story of the last area in North America to be homesteaded: the beautiful Peace River Country.
"This new book is a companion to the first one, The Peace: An Exploration in Photographs," explains author/photographer Don Pettit. "But this is much more about people: the First Nations, explorers, homesteaders and settlers who build the Peace River Region we know today. It's a remarkable, surprising story, filled with romance and tragedy, failure and success, hopes and dreams. this book tells it and shows it, like never before."
