36 British Columbia, The Pacific Province: Geographical Essays
edited by
Colin J.B. Wood

British Columbia is a distinctive province and major region of Canada. Its size, mountainous character, extensive indented coastline, mighty rivers and orientation to the Pacific realm, create a special identity that sets it apart from the rest of the continent. Its diverse ecosystems are parallelled by a rich ethnic mosaic and variegated tapestry of human activity - from the sophisticated metropolis of Vancouver to the remote and isolated settlements of the northern interior. This a revised and completely updated version of British Columbia:its Resources and People. It systematically describes and interprets the physical and human geography of the province at the turning point of the millenium.
