Published from the manuscript in the National Archives, Eunice Harrison’s memoir of life in BC from 1860 to 1906 offers one of the earliest accounts of the province by a woman. She knew many of the important people in the colony and province, including the Douglas family, and speaks freely about everyday events in British Columbia, such as famous murders, rides on "the unfinished transcontinental" and her meetings with First Nations people. With verve and humour, she describes her husband’s many hazardous trips over the Brigade Trail into the interior of the province to dispense frontier justice. She includes an account of her visit to San Francisco where she, along with her young son and daughter, was caught in the earthquake of 1906 and the subsequent fire that destroyed much of the city. The book includes many original black & white photos from the Harrison personal files.
