KnowBC.com has as one of its "eBook" offerings, Far West: The Story of British Columbia.
This is an excellent resource that covers the people and cultures that have lived in what we call BC today.
"British Columbia’s colourful story has been told many times, but until now no one has attempted to relate the chronicle specifically for young readers. From the gold rush to the Gumboot Navy and from “bride ships” to W.A.C. Bennett, BC history comes alive for young readers in this highly illustrated and vivid account by award-winning writer and historian Daniel Francis."
The eBook is available here: (School password needed.)
