>> "[T]here is much to be learned here for all Canadians.
>> Daniel Francis is a widely respected historian who has
>> done a masterful job--for more than 10 years--of shepherding
>> this enormous project to completion. There are more than
>> 4,000 articles, ranging from the economy to society to arts
>> and cultural life. Many have been written by specialists in
>> the field and represent the current state of thinking or
>> research on subjects like the future of the forest industries
>> or the political currents generated by the Nisga'a Treaty."
>> --Roger Hall, The Globe and Mail
>>
>> More than ten years in the making, the encyclopedia
>> is the most comprehensive and fascinating reference
>> work on BC ever published. A million words of
>> essential BC knowledge richly illustrated in full-colour
>> and on multimedia CD-ROM:
>>
>>  More than 4,000 articles by leading BC experts
>>  Thousands of historic and contemporary photographs
>>  Hundreds of maps, charts and diagrams
>>  A goldmine of useful statistics
>>  Cross-referenced and indexed
>>
>> "It is clearly written, nicely organized, politically balanced
>> and makes frequent use of explanatory pictures, maps and
>> charts. . . . As far as I know, it's the first succinct source for
>> immediate answers to historical, economic, geographical
>> or miscellaneous questions concerning BC."
>> --Barry Link, Vancouver Courier
>>
>> An encyclopedia in the classic sense, the EBC
>> touches every facet of British Columbia from the
>> formation of the Coast Mountains to the evolution
>> of aboriginal art to the development of the Ballard
>> fuel cell. Geography, history, economics, art,
>> forestry, First Nations and other major topics are
>> the subjects of feature essays by leading
>> scholars.
>>
>> "The EBC is lively, serious, profusely illustrated, authoritative,
>> funny, and a thing we should all be proud of. . . . No
>> household in British Columbia should be without one."
>> --Terry Glavin, Georgia Straight

>> of BC is packed with weighty entries."
>> --Tom Barrett, Vancouver Sun
>>
>> "BC's first-ever encyclopedia is a magnificent accomplishment.
>> The CD-ROM adds a significant dimension to an already impressive
>> publication. It includes the full content of the squashed-tree
>> version,
>> complete with hyperlinks, and it really shines in its audio-visual
>> material. This is a book that should be on every desk.
>> I don't know how we ever got along without it."
