From the early explorers who saw the power of the water as both a barrier and a passageway, to the pioneers who saw the rivers as potential for development and then to the people who were impacted by the development, the history of hydroelectric development in Southeastern British Columbia is tied as closely to people as it is to the land. There are stories of loss - fisheries blocked by dam building, flooded farm land, drowned towns and expropriation. There are stories of riches - growth of industries and infrastructure. Through personal stories and photographs, the history of development on the rivers comes alive.
