I guess its because I'm finding my place here but recently I've become more and more interested in the histories of Vancouver and surrounding area. Funny thing is that I lived in Calgary a full 24 years and never developed such an interest.
Sources I've recently been reading include Legends of Vancouver, Vancouver A visual History, online sources like "Past Tense" ( which I wish would publish more) and a great historic documentary of the Japanese-Canadians' love of baseball.
I also read The Maquinna Line by Norma Macmillan this winter which was an interesting historical (mostly) fiction book in the same vein.
