People of the Peace

| 24 min

A summary and analysis of the Peace River district showing the economic factors necessary for an integrated and prosperous development. It is a warm and human story of change from primitive sod-busting to modern, mechanized agriculture and industry, and a tribute to the pioneer spirit which still finds scope in our northern settlement fringe.
