About this book

Originally arriving on Vancouver Island in 1863 to collect seeds, roots and plants for the Botanical Association of Edinburgh, this 21 year old Scot, being interested in the life of native people, eagerly agreed to become the commander of the Vancouver Island Exploring Expedition when it was offered to him. His journal is a remarkable record of life on Vancouver Island over a century ago.
