This is a transcription of Rev. John Goodfellow's book published in 1958 by the Princeton Centennial Committee. Reverend Goodfellow's writings are well respected for their accuracy and attention to detail. Unfortunately, this book is no longer in print, and is extremely difficult to find. We have created the website for this book to preserve it and that it might educate people on the history of the Similkameen area, which was surely Rev. Goodfellow's original intent. During the transcription process, we noted some typographical errors in the original book, and have purposely left them in this version to preserve the authenticity of the work.
"Libraries exist to preserve society's cultural artifacts and to provide access to them. If libraries are to continue to foster education and scholarship in this era of digital technology, it's essential for them to extend those functions into the digital world... Without cultural artifacts, civilization has no memory and no mechanism to learn from its successes and failures." 1
Just as we would allow a friend to borrow a book, such is our intent in displaying this work on our website. This book is free to read and enjoy for personal use. It is not to be reprinted or distributed for commercial use. We hope you enjoy it.
