Land surveyors have played a fundamental role in the unique settlement history of the Canadian province of British Columbia. The story of their work is awe-inspiring . Less than 150 years ago, the provinvce of BC - a rough and beautiful child of imperial ambition - was largely a vast wilderness, occupied by societies without written maps. Within a few years, that would change forever . Men from London and Vicrtoria made their way along trails and up waterways, observing the stars, setting their compasses, and drawing the lines that would become roads and railways, international and provincial boundaries, towns and cities, farms and homes. Those invisible lines contnue to form the backbone of British Columbia's economic and settlement structure. This popular history tells the remarkable story of the men and women who surveyed the province. Using basic equipment, surveyors endured arduous work conditions. They witnessed the tragedy of colonial impact on aboriginal peoples, protected the interests of prospectors, settlers, and entrepreneurs, pioneered aerial technologies in the mountains, and left their names on landmarks all over British Columbia. Made to Measure paints an engaging, vivid portrait of land surveyors and their influence on British Columbia, linked inextricably to both past and future sentiment ." Made to Measure : A History of Land Surveying in British Columbia " . by Katherine Gordon . published by Sono Nis Press, Winlaw, B.C., Canada; in English only. 2006 Hard cover Book in original DJ . *** Secure packing for Safe Shipping since 1965 *** 6-1/2 x 9-3/4 x 1-1/4 ".
