British Columbia–Yukon Sternwheel Days
by Art Downs
CDN$ 14.95

Over 300 sternwheelers plied the BC-Yukon waters, a record in North America. In icy northern lakes, rivers and the open sea, these flat-bottomed steamers served for 100 years. Ripped open by rapids, gutted by fire, crushed by ice, they left a memorable wake that altered history forever. This book includes portraits of flamboyant captains and crews, details on how the vessels were constructed and operated, historical background of the communities they served and more.
