The stories of the men and women who dug for gold on Williams Creek
are told in this revised and updated edition of a Canadian
bestseller. The legendary town of Barkerville is flourishing today,
just as it did more than 150 years ago, but this time under the
care of professional and amateur historians. Richard Thomas Wright
peels back the pages of history as he unearths the area's history
and chronicles the fortunes and the follies of gold-rush-era
Barkerville. The result of years of around-the-world research,
Barkerville and the Cariboo Goldfields brings to life the men and
women of the creeks who came in search of gold and left their mark
on BC history. Wright mined the archives to bring forth new
information on the development of the Cariboo goldfields and nearby
places of interest. "Barkerville" includes dozens of little-known
historical photos and a complete index. It is the best, most
comprehensive source of detailed information on this important
national heritage site.
