McKelvie's title is too modest: this is in essence a very well researched short history of British Columbia to the end of the nineteenth century, written for the general reader. Its more than 100 short chapters "first appeared in serial form in The Vancouver Daily Province, between February 1953 and March 1955". [Suggest a different description.]
