British Columbia is big! Gargantuan huge, in fact, although it is lightly populated. ITMB published a map of the more densely populated southern half of the province a number of years ago, and we have been asked to give the same emphasis to the northern half ever since. Here it is! Side 1 is of the western portion, including the Alaskan Panhandle, with the route followed by cruise ships heading north and clearly delineates the border between Canada and the USA that nearly erupted into warfare (54 40 or fight). It also shows the Stewart Highway heading north towards the Yukon, with its branch leading to Hyder, Alaska, the only place in the USA that uses Canadian money and does all its banking in Canada. The second side covers the eastern half of BC's north, with the Alaska Highway starting in Dawson Creek and extending north to Fort Nelson before veering west into the eastern edge of the Rocky Mountains to the Yukon border. This is true wilderness country. It is virtually unpopulated outside of small towns. One can drive for hours and never see another vehicle. It rings with images such as the Chilcoot Trail to the goldfields, or the arduous wartime track created as a land bridge to defend Alaska in case of invasion. It would take a full day to drive from the south to the north of this map. This is a 'must have' map for any store considering itself a focal point for adventure travel.
