Atlas of the Canadian Columbia by William D. Layman
Aerial Perspectives of the River's Remaking

Welcome to Columbia River Visions

The Atlas of the Canadian Columbia offers a fresh look at the river before and after three major dams were built across its waters in Canada. Combining striking then and now photographs and a series of maps, the atlas provides a visual foundation for the river in light of the 1964 Columbia River Treaty. With the possibility of its renewal or revision only a few years away, the atlas is written so that citizens, government entities and others may examine the enormous changes brought over the last fifty years – changes that have given new definition to the river and its people in this all important region of the British Columbia.

Limited Edition Boxed Set includes:

  • 37 maps adapted from the Columbia Basin Survey of Canadian Columbia River that show the river prior to the 1964 Columbia River Treaty. The maps include numerous aerial views taken in 1962 by amateur river enthusiast T. A. Weaver as well as photographs taken by the author in 2008-2009 as part of the Wenatchee Valley Museum & Cultural Center's Repeat Photography project.
  • 50 page Atlas Narrative describing project background and present-day relevance to the Columbia River Treaty.
  • Map of the Columbia Basin (24" x 30") originally commissioned by the Wenatchee Valley Museum & Cultural Center.
