A.M. Bezanson: Promotor of the Peace

October is Canadian Library Month!  You can find A.M. Bezanson’s work through your local library.
 

Over to the Calverley archives once again today, to an article about another Peace Country author.  A.M. Bezanson was a rancher and sawmill operator (at Bezanson, of course), but his real passion was selling the Peace Country as a land of promise.  His book,  Sodbusters Invade the Peace, was published in 1954 and he wrote two pamphlets that made it around the world.  Did he exaggerate the merits of the Peace Country, or was he right on?  You can read his book and the pamphlets and decide for yourself, but first, here is Dorthea Calverley’s article A. M. BEZANSON — PEACE RIVER PROMOTER.
