Richard Blumenthal has released the the fourth and final book in his series of journal transcriptions: British Columbia Waters:The Explorations of Vancouver and the Spanish.  The first three releases cover our earliest explorers through Washington waters. “British Columbia Waters, The Explorations of Vancouver and the Spanish” includes a transcription of the journals of George Vancouver and several of his men as well as the Spanish journal as they complete their circumnavigation of Vancouver Island.

This original “source material” makes for great reading for armchair historians as well as providing a wonderful resource for anyone researching our early maritime history!

British Columbia Waters: The Explorations of Vancouver and the Spanish is now available online at and you may email Richard Blumenthal with any questions you may have.
