Reading the National Narrative

BC Encyclopedia Now Free

Apr 5, 2020

Good news for anyone seeking to learn more about things British Columbian.

The Encyclopedia of British Columbia is now free online. My publisher, Harbour Publishing, has decided generously to make the EBC available at a time when the public, and especially students, are looking for reliable sources of information. So it has torn down the paywall. All you have to do is get yourself over to the EBC's website, knowbc.com, and start reading.

Not only that but several other of Harbour's online resources have also been made available. That includes my own history of British Columbia for young readers, Far West, as well as Where Mountains Meet the Sea, my history of North Vancouver, along with several other titles.

Check it out.
