Combining evocative haiku, informative text and luminous illustrations, The West is Calling celebrates, for our youngest readers, 150 years of British Columbia’s history. Each detail-rich illustration depicts a moment in the province’s dynamic saga, from pre-contact Haida culture to the natural-resources-fueled economic boom in the 1960′s, Expo 86, the opening of the North and the growing appreciation of First Nation traditions.
