"Deeper Roots and Greener Valleys"
"Deeper Roots and Greener Valleys" is a history book about the Fraser Lake area, located in the heart of what is now known as the Omineca District of British Columbia, a province of Canada. Fort Fraser, Fraser Lake and Endako are situated along a thirty-two kilometer stretch of Highway 16, approximately one hundred and thirty-five kilometers west of the city of Prince George. Fraser Lake is the largest of the three settlements, having attained village status in 1966. It was not always so, however. During the construction of the Grand Trunk Pacific Railroad, Fort Fraser was well on its way to becoming a city with a population upwards of three thousand. Endako, which was a divisional point for the railroad, had a population estimated at one thousand.
