Subject Guides and Overview Articles

The Encyclopedia of British Columbia includes six long feature essays on the history of the province, its economy, its literature, its natural history, its physical geography and its First Nations, each written by an expert in the field. In addition, many of the EBC's articles also provide concise overviews of key subject areas. These are all intended to introduce readers to a subject and may be used as jumping-off points for further discovery. Readers will find that these articles are extensively cross-referenced with many links to related articles.

We have compiled these feature articles here for easy reference, and will continue to add to them with additional subject guides over time. As with every article in the EBC, we hope that these will serve as doorways to an expanding world of knowledge about our province.
