Mountain and prairie; a journey from Victoria to Winnipeg, via Peace River Pass. With maps and illustrations Gordon, Daniel M., 1845-1925


"The final selection of a Pacific terminus for the C.P.R. was reserved until a northern route was examined. The author accompanied the expedition appointed to make the examination, travelling by boat from Port Simpson up the Skeena as far as the Forks from where he went on foot to Lake Babine. From Lake Babine he travelled to Fort Macleod where the party divided: some proceeded across the Rockies via Pine River Pass, while the others, including the author, descended the Peace River to Dunvegan." -- Lowther, B. J., & Laing, M. (1968). A bibliography of British Columbia: laying the foundations, 1849-1899. Victoria, BC: University of Victoria, p. 66.
