About the Author

Robin Fisher is head of the Department of History at the University of Northern British Columbia.


A well-written, stimulating book recommended for university and college libraries with an interest in Canadian and Indian history.


This reviewer rates Professor Fisher's outstanding book as the finest regional analysis yet written on the interracial adjustments between Native inhabitants of the Pacific northwest and the white invaders.

--Journal of the West

Without doubt one of the best accounts that has been written. It is a book which will be in demand by every student of British Columbia history and certainly should be on the bookshelf of those doing anthropological studies in the area.

--American West
