Brett McGillivray focuses first on the combination of physical processes that produced a spectacular variety of mountains, lakes, fjords, forests, and minerals, explaining how the land was shaped and what hazards can remake it. A concise examination of BC historical geography follows, covering First Nations ways of life, colonization, Asian immigration, and the bitter history of institutionalized racism. The text also contains a detailed description of the economic geography of the province, with chapters on forestry, the fishery, metal mining, energy supply and demand, agriculture, water, and tourism. It addresses contemporary issues of urbanization, economic development, and resource management.
