From the sagebrush, desert country of southern valleys of the Okanagan and Similkameen across to the high grandeur of the East Kootenays, the southern interior of BC remains an entrancing region. To some people it is the ghost town country, and area where half a hundred towns stood in another century, to others it is the land of gold creeks, for there was a time when streams drew thousands of miners in their never ending quest for Eldorado. Fortunately, some of this area remains relatively unchanged and even today the wilderness is but a glance away and beyond the travelled routes, the trail blazing country still beckons. For that rather unique breed, those who feel at ease in places far off the beaten path or deep in the back country where the echoes of history are still audible and the atmosphere of half-forgotten eras lingers on, we hope that this book will be enjoyable, for it is for those individuals that is in intended.

If you'd like to learn about the past of the towns along the old Dewdney Trail, this wonderful book by Mr. Barlee is an interesting read. Those heading east past Princeton along the Crowsnest Highway may want to flip through to find out more about this fascinating part of B.C.
