Hollyburn by Francis Mansbridge
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This is the first book to be published on the rich and diverse history of Hollyburn, the forested mountainous area above West Vancouver, BC -- an area which will host freestyle skiing and snowboarding events in the 2010 Winter Olympics. The history takes us from the First Nations people, through the 1870s when loggers began attacking the slopes, to the twentieth century and the dedicated crowds of skiers and other outdoor enthusiasts, right up until the present-day struggles over priorities for the environment.

Author Biography

Francis Mansbridge's interest in the history of the North Shore was stimulated by his dozen years as an archivist in North Vancouver. A love of outdoor recreation has led him to spend extensive time exploring the Hollyburn area. Prior to his archival work, Francis taught English at a number of colleges and universities, mostly at the College of the Rockies in Cranbrook. He holds a PhD in English from the University of Ottawa and has published extensively on both academic and popular subjects.
