The Man and the Village
Whitfield Chase. The first settler at the foot of Little Shuswap Lake much later gave his name to the village. Because he was a very interesting man, and because his grand-daughter, the late Marjorie Paquette, lent the Museum a series of letters written during his adventures, it seems justifiable to devote considerable space to his fascinating career. He wrote very well in the somewhat florid style of his period, and presents the valiant persistence of a lonely man in an entirely alien environment.
