Scope and content

Audrey Smedley L'Heureux writing, and journalism career spanned her editorship of the Nechako Chronicle (1964-1971), the Smithers Interior News (1974-1975), and the Alcan Ingot (1976-1977). Through her journalism experience, Audrey L’Heureux gained an interest in British Columbia history and began compiling her research into books.

This series consists of records relating to L'Heureux's writing, including book manuscripts, book reviews, and correspondence about publications. L'Heureux's "From Trail to Rail" book series was her most widely available publication. This series includes:

  • "From Trail to Rail: Surveys & Gold, 1862 to 1904" published in 1987;
  • "From Trail to Rail: Settlement Begins, 1905-1914" published in 1989; and,
  • a third 1983 manuscript tentatively titled "From Trail to Rail: [Out of the Heart of British Columbia]" that was never published.
    Draft manuscripts for all three of these publications are included in this series, in both digital and print format. The series also includes research materials for Audrey L'Heureux's first book "Northern B.C. in Retrospect" which was published in 1979.
