Description - Hollyburn by Francis Mansbridge

This is the first book to be published on the rich and diverse history of Hollyburn, the forested mountainous area above West Vancouver, BC -- an area which will host freestyle skiing and snowboarding events in the 2010 Winter Olympics. The history takes us from the First Nations people, through the 1870s when loggers began attacking the slopes, to the twentieth century and the dedicated crowds of skiers and other outdoor enthusiasts, right up until the present-day struggles over priorities for the environment.
