Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Goldstream River is a tributary of the Columbia River, joining that stream via the Lake Revelstoke reservoir after running largely west from the heart of the northern Selkirk Mountains. The river's name derives from the Big Bend Gold Rush of 1865, during which it was the scene of busy prospecting and mining activities and as one of the centres of the rush. A tributary or affluent is a stream or river which flows into a main stem (or parent) river or a lake. A tributary does not flow directly into a sea or ocean. Tributaries and the mainstem river serve to drain the surrounding drainage basin of its surface water and groundwater by leading the water out into an ocean or sea.show more
