History is in Colour

I am totally stoked about the soon to be in mailboxes Winter issue of British Columbia History. It has a colour cover.

The photography of author and photographer Matt Whelan graces the cover. 

Read his story about the Warplane in the Woods: nestled in the forest of the Pacific coast lies a graffiti-covered fuselage — an eerie reminder of the Second World War.

For those readers who love maps,  The Lower Mainland’s First Settler Built Trail by John Macdonald is full of maps and includes a colour map on the back cover from 1889.

This issue includes stories about an escaped Washington slave by by Racan Souiedan; logging camp memories by Peggie Law; a different perspective on Surrey by Mary Carlisle; a reprint of a Victor comic from May 1962; a piece on the Salt Spring Island Archives' ambitious digitization project; and a story of a dugout canoe from the Osoyoos & District Museum and Archives.

Look for it in mailboxesx and book stores in early December.
