George Mercer Dawson was, indeed, no ordinary man. Born in 1849, son of the first Principal of McGill University, Dawson defied health circumstances that would have defeated many people and went on to become one of our most exceptional Canadians. As a geologist in the British North American Boundary Commission between Canada and the U.S.A. and as Director of the Geological Survey of Canada in 1895, Dawson examined and explored every aspect of Canada's unknown territories. This collection of writings, letters, diaries and essays begins with the young George and moves through his developing years to his adult life. "He climbed, walked and rode on horseback over more of Canada than any other member of the Geological Survey of Canada at that time -- yet to look at him, one would not think him capable of a day's hard physical labour ... It was his hand that first traced upon vacant maps the geological formations of the Yukon and much of British Columbia."--Lois Winslow-Spragge "To read about him is like taking a drink of water from a cool, unpolluted spring. His sense of values was so great that he once said he didn't care much for money or possessions. All he wanted was what he could hold in his canoe."--Anne Byers, Ottawa

George Dawson was hired by the Geological Survey of Canada to record the geology of B.C. Because very little topography had been mapped, he was also required to act as a surveyor. In this first volume of his journals (1875-76), he presents a wealth of information on fauna, flora and the settlements of First Nations
