Pertains to the story of Robert Le M. M’Clure, the man credited with travelling the North-West Passage. The publication provides a review of early Canadian travel, and the places European travelers experienced. Specifically, the book talks about the Investigator, the ship that helped M’Clure’s crew explore new terrain. The author shares tales of success, heartbreak and resilience, as the crew battled against the forces of nature, and their inexperience in this new travel.

History-Canada
Abstract
"In the early days of British Columbia, the land lying along the American border from Rock Creek to Salmo was almost forgotten territory. In the beginning, the fur trade followed the lines of least resistance and these led southward by valley and river to United States soil. With the discovery of gold, copper and silver in the Boundary country, a subtle struggle between American and Canadian influence developed - each striving to draw a trade from the area. Over the years, the history of the region has been woven around the struggle between the powerful American magnet of roads and railroads to draw Boundary country into its orbit and the Canadian efforts to divert this traffic into an east-west pattern. The two major weapons in the hands of the Canadians were the Dewdney Trail of 1865 and the Kettle Valley Railroad. This, our eight Frontier Guide, is the attempt to portray the development of the Boundary country in relation to the roles played by the Dewdney Trail and the fabulous Kettle Valley Line."

History of Alberta
Abstract
"Highway No.3 is a ribbon of concrete that winds through some of the most dramatic scenery in Western Canada. At times it courses between valley walls lush with vegetation and history, adn at others it climbs mountain sides to meander gracefully over the top of the world. It was originally called the Dewdney Trail and it ran from Hope, through Rock Creek and on to Wild Horse Camp, 6 miles northeast of Cranbrook. Today, with a few variations of route, it follows the old trail and has become in every sense of the word the New Dewdney Trail. In this, our seventh Frontier Guide, we are attempting to trace the story adn the history of both the old trail and the new , from Hope to Rock Creek. In companion volumes, we hope to complete the trail from Rock Creek to Salmo adn from Salmo to Wild Horse."
