June 9 - garage sale

Three classics, to expand my shelf of "this is what BC means to me, stop your academic babbling" books:
  • Herbert L. McDonald, British Columbia: Challenge in Abundance (1966)
  • ed. The BC Centennial '71 Committee, It Happened In British Columbia: A Pictorial Review, 1871 to 1971 (1970, somehow)
  • ed. Borden Spears, photos assembled by Bruce M. Litteljohn, Wilderness Canada (1970)
Admittedly I babble academically myself, but these books help me reconstruct older versions of BC, so it all makes more sense to my students when I read or teach older writings on this place. I love these kinds of books, to be honest, the "trees were SO huge and the men SO tough" genre!
