Overview

"We stayed in the water for an hour and watched, as the town burned! Never, ever, have I been so scared as that day." With the spine-tingling words the imaginary Mary-Margaret captures the imaginative flavor of the City of Vancouver, then and now. She grows up with the city, sharing with us the feelings and experiences of the early settlers, the Chinese and Japanese people, the railroads and streetcars, the laundries and the ports, our aquarium and fire departments, our police dogs and Billy the Goat, our victories and disasters. Mary-Margaret takes us through a fun and fact-filled tour of 100 years. It's entertaining for the young reader and helpful to the librarian and teacher.
