In 1858, reports of gold found on the Fraser River spurred tens of thousands of people?mostly men?to rush into the territory we now call British Columbia. They came with visions of fortune in their eyes. The lucky ones struck it rich, but most left penniless or died trying for the motherlode. Some stayed behind and helped build the colony and the province of British Columbia.

Dr. Kathryn Bridge is a historian, archivist and museum curator. She has written several books on historical figures in British Columbia, including By Snowshoe, Buckboard & Steamer (about BC?s frontier women), which won the 1998 Lieutenant-Governor?s Medal for Historical Writing, and most recently Emily Carr in England (RBCM 2014).
