"Surrey: A City of Stories is the legacy project proposed by the Surrey Heritage Advisory Commission in celebration of Canada 150. The Commission's aspirations were high: they hoped to create a book that would be an experience--both a richly illustrated visual chronicle and a beautifully written tribute to Surrey and its citizens over time. Surrey: A City of Stories represents the fulfillment of those aspirations as it offers stories of this place in all their breadth and diversity, from the distant past to the modern day."--Jacket flap.
