Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Beatton River is a tributary of the Peace River, flowing generally east, then south through north-eastern British Columbia, Canada. The river rises at Pink Mountain, about 10 km west of the Alaska Highway hamlet of the same name, and flows 240 km generally east, then south, draining into the Peace River just downstream of Fort St. John. The river meanders mostly through the boreal forest and muskeg of the Peace Plain. Its major tributaries are the Doig and Blueberry Rivers. The area around the river is the homeland of the Dane-zaa or Beaver First Nation. Archaeologists have found evidence of human habitation in the area dating back at least 10,000 years. The mouth of the Beatton River was the location of a Northwest Company fort established in 1806. Modern-day British Columbia's first European settlement was fur trading Rocky Mountain Fort, established in 1794 at the mouth of the Moberly River near the present Fort St. John.show more
