Interview - Alan Pickard, part three: the 'how' and 'why' historical research, and the 'who' of early BC exploration.

"That’s why I’m interested in bridges. Bridges tend to be a focal point…so people came from all angles to this point…so I thought ‘Ah! If I actually start researching bridges, just as a topic, and forget everything else, I’ll find out everything else.’”


A great written complimentary to Alan's interviews is this online exhibit by Brenda Guernsey titled Spanning the Distance: Aboriginal Bridges of Northwestern British Columbia.

Local cartographer Morgan Hite profiled Simon McGillivray's map in his Northword column.
