The Edge of the World: BC’s Early Years brings to life 20
fascinating stories from our own wild west- tales of the salmon people,
death-defying voyageurs, desperate gold-seekers, Chinese railway workers, and
heroic woman of the frontier.
Firmly rooted in the personal stories of people who were
there, this is a side of our history we rarely see- from the early First
Nations communities, to the frontier life of new arrivals. It was a time of
cultural collision, war, political intrigue, epidemics, and tragedy, but also
of fascinating characters, great adventure, and epic rescue missions.
These are the stories that shaped our past and offer a
reflection of who we are today.
