Waterfront: The Illustrated Maritime Story of Greater Vancouver
by James P. Delgado
Publisher: Stanton Atkins & Dosil Publishers

Waterfront: The Illustrated Maritime Story of Greater Vancouver

From prehistoric mariners who ventured out of the Arctic wastes after the last great ice age to European explorers who sought a fabled passage to the riches of the Orient to enterprising shipping magnates and immigrants, this lively illustrated tour entwines their tales with the birth and growth of cities, ports, industries, and companies. Delgado is executive director of the Vancouver Maritime Museum. He is the author or editor of twenty-nine books and numerous articles and archaeological reports covering a wide range of subjects related to the histories of shipwrecks. His books Lost Warships: An Archaeological Tour of War at Sea and Across the Top of the World: The Quest for the Northwest Passage are both international bestsellers published simultaneously in North America and Britain.
