British Columbia - Yukon Sternwheel Days PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

British Columbia - Yukon Sternwheel Days free pdf Over 300 sternwheelers plied the BC-Yukon waters, a record in North America. In icy northern lakes, rivers and the open sea, these flat-bottomed steamers served for 100 years. Ripped open by rapids, gutted by fire, crushed by ice, they left a memorable wake that altered history forever. This book includes portraits of flamboyant captains and crews, details on how the vessels were constructed and operated, historical background of the communities they served and more.

About Art Downs

Art Downs, described as the first of the environmental editors, was one of the forefathers of the BC publishing industry. Born in England in 1924, Art immigrated to Saskatchewan as a young child. He worked in the merchant navy during the Second World War and then moved to the Quesnel River Valley in the Cariboo. He became owner and editor of the Cariboo Digest, which evolved into BC Outdoors, a successful blend of history, wildlife and conservation. In 1979, he and his wife, Doris, established Heritage House and began publishing books by BC writers for BC readers. He died in Surrey in 1996.
