Maps and Dreams: Indians and the British Columbia Frontier by Hugh Brody

<p><b><i>Maps and Dreams</i></b>is a journey in to the lives and lands of the Beaver people, forest hunters of the Canadian sub-Arctic. Fascinating descriptions of daily life and the Indians dreams of hunting trails and of heaven alternate with a perceptive commentary on the history, politics and social conditions of northeastern British Columbia. Two realities emerge: the rapacious dreams and plans of the white man, and the maps the Beaver people made to demonstrate the tenacity of a hunting and trapping economy.</p> <p>Conflicts of interest and the collision of points of view are reflected in th structure of the book. Odd-numbered chapters are a narrative of the Beaver people in their hunting territory of forests and foothills. The even-numbered chapters explore how they must compete with resource and recreational industries for an ever-greater piece of the North. Drawing on the <b>Hugh Brody</b>s experiences of living with the Beaver people, this book makes a signficiant contribution to social science and history, without depriving the reader of the pure enjoyment of fine writing and storytelling.</p
