The West Is Calling by P-OrcaBooks

VIEWS: 9 PAGES: 4

Combining evocative haiku, informative text and luminous illustrations, The West Is Calling is a celebration, for our youngest readers, of one hundred and fifty years of British Columbia's history. Each detail-rich illustration depicts a particular moment in the province's dynamic saga, from pre-contact Haida culture, to the natural resources-fueled economic boom in the 1960s and beyond, to Expo 86, to the opening up of the North and the growing appreciation of First Nations' traditions.

Description

Combining evocative haiku, informative text and luminous illustrations, The West Is Calling is a
celebration, for our youngest readers, of one hundred and fifty years of British Columbia's history. Each
detail-rich illustration depicts a particular moment in the province's dynamic saga, from pre-contact Haida
culture, to the natural resources-fueled economic boom in the 1960s and beyond, to Expo 86, to the
opening up of the North and the growing appreciation of First Nations' traditions.
Reviews

Though it includes a haiku on each page, this title is much more than simply a poetry book. It is a history
lesson, a seek-and-find..., and a paean to British Columbia all rolled into one neatly designed package.
