He Moved a Mountain:
The Life of Frank Calder and the Nisga’a Land Claims Accord
by Joan Harper
Frank Calder’s story is a fascinating read. He was Nisga’a, born in the wilderness of N.W. British Columbia, graduated from university, was an elected a member of BC’s Legislature for 26 years, and gained recognition for Aboriginal land title. His experience at residential school was positive and he believed all First Nation people should become self reliant. Shawn Atleo claimed, “The life of men like Calder should be studied by everyone.” Popular with book clubs.
