This is the book cover of The Pathfinder: A.C. Anderson’s journeys in the West.
The publisher used a favorite family photograph, and placed Anderson’s figure in front of a portion of his famous 1867 Map of a Portion of British Columbia.
The completed book cover has on its front Jacket Jack Nisbet’s cover quote, which reads:
“A meticulously researched, unflinching account … a window onto the Pacific Northwest’s restless transition from fur trade fiefdom into the place we know today.”
Jack Nisbet is the author of many books about David Thompson’s fur trade, including Sources of the River, and The Mapmaker’s Eye.
