About This Item

Victoria, BC: Self-Published, 1975. Book. Good. Paperback. First Edition. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. [2], 31 pages. Black and white reproductions of archival photos. Fascinating and delightful reading. Describes the life of the author's hardy European ancestors who settled in the Cowichan area on Vancouver Island in the 1800s. The story begins with Robert McLay who left Airdrie, Lanarkshire, Scotland, to first visit Vancouver Island in 1862. Modern residents of the area will marvel at how these settlers got by without any of the infrastructure we now take for granted. Also interesting is the description of relations with the local native peoples. Unmarked with average wear to beige card covers. A precious local history and genealogical reference. Hale & Barman 81..
