Kamloops history comes alive

Elisabeth Duckworth and Ron Hatch helped put together a new history book about Kamloops titled "Kamloops: From Trading Post to Tournament Capital" (Josh Pagé/CBC).
Two hundred years ago the first trading post in Kamloops went up.

That marked the beginning of a shared existence along the Thompson Rivers between people in Kamloops, and the Tk'emlups First Nation.

A new detailed and fully illustrated history book pays tribute to that beginning, and all 200 years of life in Kamloops.

Ron Hatch and Elisabeth Duckworth helped put it together.

They speak with host Shelley Joyce.
