Bannock and Beans: A Cowboys Account of the Bedaux Expedition by Bob White

In 1934, in the middle of the Great Depression, millionaire Charles Bedaux spent $250,000 in an attempt to cross northern British Columbia in five motorized vehicles. The Bedaux Expedition ranks as one of the most audacious and unusual events in the provinces history. Bannock Beans tells the story of this extravagant failure from the perspective of one of the cowboys who worked on Bedauxs team. Bob Whites reminiscences, recounted in the tradition of the cowboy storyteller, describe the hardships of cutting trails and hauling supplies on horseback, the beauty of the wilderness landscape and many of the unique aspects of the expedition. Bannock and Beans also reveals the complex character of the expeditions leader, Charles Bedaux, a French entrepreneur who made his fortune in the United States. The book includes Whites experiences in Bedauxs attempts to develop a ranch in northern BC after the expedition.
