Various media outlets reported on the earliest known account of British Columbia by an English woman, which was acquired by UBC Rare Books and Special Collections.
Dr. Jean Barman, a professor emerita in UBC’s department of educational studies, told Global “this journal is a gift to all Canadians.”
