Description: Riveting stories from the Fraser Valley early days told in a can't put it down book by Don Waite.
Riveting stories from the Fraser Valley early days told in a "can't put it down" book by Don Waite. The murder of a chief fur trader and the punitive vengeance wreaked by the company launches this can't-put-it-down book of riveting stories. Historian Don Waite also puts on his hiking boots and explores the lost mine of Pitt Lake with the man who claims to have discovered its legendary wealth. He also recounts the exploits of Canada's first train robber, Bill Miner, and the Mountie who brought him in.
Former Mountie Don Waite, makes his living as an aerial and commercial photographer in Maple Ridge. His interest in the Cariboo Fraser Canyon, and Fraser Valley, subjects of this trilogy, was sparked by the awesome mountainscapes and fed by police assignments which uncovered some dusty archives and irresistible reports. To substantiate these, he tramped the terrible terrain himself.
