Jim McDowell presents Uncharted Waters at VPL

Jim McDowell’s new biography of the little-known Spanish explorer José Narváez, reveals his significant discoveries during the European exploration of what is now Canada’s Pacific Northwest Coast. In 1791, Narváez discovered what is now known as the Salish Sea and explored Vancouver harbour (before George Vancouver arrived). The city of Vancouver could rightly be called Narvaez.

Join Jim McDowell from on 3:00 pm-5:00 pm on November 15 for a presentation on the life and impact of José Narváez at VPL Central Library.
