This oversize (10.5x15") atlas is an ambitious in-depth presentation of 15,000 years of natural, cultural, and spiritual history of the Coast Salish people--from the last great glaciation to the 21st century. Along with the text is an abundance of graphics: historic maps, original cartographic representations, photographs, and artwork. The diversity of the contributors is reflected in the wide range of topics and the descriptive, interpretive, and theoretical approaches; and much of the new analysis presented is attributable to cooperative efforts of native and non-native investigators. An exhaustive compilation of Halq'emeylem place names, with accompanying explanatory text and translations is included. c. Book News Inc.

This amazing atlas should be a "must read" for everyone living in the Lower Mainland of British Columbia in order to gain an appreciation of the history, lifestyles, and traditions of the Coast Salish / Sto:lo peoples - the original inhabitants. The many illustrations and graphics compliment the text wonderfully.
