Some say that Western Canada began with the railway. In fact, it began with a gold rush. Relive the tumultuous days of gold’s discovery in British Columbia’s Fraser Canyon. Travel back to 1858 and meet some of the tens of thousands of fortune-seeking prospectors who dreamed of astonishing finds, like the huge Turnagain Nugget. Find out how the gold rush attracted thousands of miners and entrepreneurs of various social and ethnic origins and forever transformed this once-remote region of the Pacific Northwest.
