Rate this:
Where the River Ran presents the story of the Peace, the river and the land, in a sequence of short stories and poems. The history of the Peace is brought to life through an imaginative mix of fictional storytellers and historical events.

To Thelma Irvine, the Peace is much more than an attractive landscape and a mighty river. In this book a cast of fascinating characters moves through the pages to recreate the adventures of the past. They challenge rapids and canyons, rough trails and loneliness to become the heritage of the present day.

The written history of the Peace includes exploration, fur trading, gold mining, the search for new railway passes, and the development of resources.

This book is part prose, part poetry, entertaining and informative. The narrators are fictitious. Many people and events are historical.
