Blazing the Trail Through the Rockies: The Story of Walter Moberly and His Share in the Making of Vancouver

By ROBINSON, Noel

Vancouver: News-Advertiser, nd. ca. 1914-15. First Edition. Original Wraps. Good. 117 p. 24 cm. 43 b&w illustrations, including "the last spike" on p. 109. Paper wraps. Rear cover detached, spine ends chipped, small stain to front cover. Bookseller's label and inscription on back of rear cover. One of B.C.'s forgotten heroes, Moberly (1832-1915) experienced the Cariboo Road, snow-covered mountain peaks, meetings with a grizzly bear, Sir John A. Macdonald and Brigham Young, railway building, a fall through the ice while playing "shinny" (hockey), onions for supper, fragile canoes, and life in early Vancouver - and lived to tell the tale. One the more prosaic side, Moberly was a civil engineer who laid out the site for New Westminster in 1859 as well as surveying several roads and trails throughout B.C. He was also instrumental in his role as a surveyor for the Canadian Pacific Railway.
