Edge of the World: BC's Early Years
CANADA, 2010, 50 minutes
Producer and Director: Erik Paulsson
Explore the people, places and events that shaped British Columbia's early history from pre-European contact until the dawn of the 20th century.
The Edge of the World: BC's Early Years brings to life 20 fascinating stories from our own wild west - tales of the salmon people, death-defying voyageurs, desperate gold-seekers, Chinese railway workers and heroic women of the frontier.
Firmly rooted in the personal stories of people who were there, this is a side of our history we rarely see - from early First Nations communities, to the frontier life of new arrivals. It was a time of cultural collision, war, political intrigue, epidemics and tragedy, but also of fascinating characters, great adventures and epic rescue missions.
These are the stories that shaped our past and offer a reflection of who we are today.
