Roadhouse Portraits Along the Cariboo's Gold Rush Trail

Book - 1998
Rate this:
When gold was discovered on the Fraser River, the rush was on. By early spring of 1858 the need for shelter, food, rest stops and stores became very apparent, as miners and would-be-miners made their way up into the hinterland. From Yale to Barkerville, roadhouses sprung up along the Cariboo's gold-rush trail. From their crude beginning, the roadhouses soon grew to be more than just stopovers. The roadhouses are gone, but the communities, villages, towns and cities remain. Golden Nuggets , with pictures and written text, brings the roadhouses back to life and gives us a glimpse of yesterday.
