Historical Atlas of Vancouver and the Lower Fraser Valley

 by Derek Hayes

I have always been fascinated by local history and this book is one of my favorites.  Through old maps, advertisements and other historical publication, Hayes traces the development of the Lower Mainland, the roads, the borders, and even in some cases, the disapperance of lakes and creeks that once found home in our home region.

This is the most locally relevant of Derek Hayes' books, but I also recommend his Historical Atlas of the North American Railroad and America Discovered : a Historical Atlas of North American Exploration or really anything else he does.
