César Cascabel Verne, Jules, 1828-1905


"Fiction. The first eight chapters describe the 1867 caravan journey of an itinerant showman and his family from California through the interior of British Columbia to Alaska. Hatred for anything British is evident in the travellers' desire to hurry through the British possession to reach Russian territory." -- Lowther, B. J., & Laing, M. (1968). A bibliography of British Columbia: Laying the foundations, 1849-1899. Victoria, BC: University of Victoria, p. 101.
