Blazing the trail through the Rockies: the story of Walter Moberly and his share in the making of Vancouver by Noel Robinson and the old man himself
Langley Centennial Museum, 1991.059.002.
Moberly was interviewed in his older years to produce this book. It details his role in surveying and determining the path of the Canadian Pacific Railroad. He did recall Jackman’s CPR team of which he commented, “The country through which the trail had to be constructed was rough and heavily timbered, which made the work of opening it tedious and expensive, and, as the misbehavior of the men obliged me to dismiss them, my working party was very small, and the construction of the trail proceeded with exasperating slowness.”
