Ever wonder what else you don’t know about Port Coquitlam?
Published by B.C.’s Harbour Publishing, the coffee-table book traces the story of Port Coquitlam from initial first-nations activity hundreds of years ago to the modern explosion of growth and development. Its 200-plus pages relate the impact of Port Coquitlam’s residents – from our famous hometown hero Terry Fox to lesser-known figures from the past – on the community’s growth and spirit. And in his trademark colourful and easy-to-read style, author Davis has peppered the book with interesting city facts and anecdotes that make the history of Port Coquitlam come alive.
