The Fraser's story is that of British Columbia and its peole, and Mr. Hutchison shows that it provides some of the richest yet least known chapters in Canadian history.

These he unrolls in an unforgettable panorama, from the days of Spanish discovery to the story of the city of Vancouver, the river's most remarkable product.

In its gold, its steamboating, its fur; as a fisherman's paradise, and as the largest untapped source of electrical power in North America - the story of the Fraser is one of colour and high drama. It is exciting reading.
