Ghost Towns & Mining Camps of Vancouver Island
by T. W Paterson
by Garnet Basque
CDN$ 22.95

Leechtown, Wellington, Bevan, Kildonan, Fort Rupert, Cape Scott . . .Vancouver Island's ghost towns dot the Island from its southern end to its northern tip, and their stories chart the boom and bust of the resource economy that still characterizes the region.

Well illustrated with maps and an abundance of photos, archival and modern, Ghost Towns & Mining Camps of Vancouver Island is filled with tales of the famous and the not-so-famous. The Dunsmuirs appear throughout the book, but so do the First Nations who lived here first and the many European and Asian settlers who were drawn by the promise of wealth and land.
