This sub-series is arranged into one file: The finished product of the virtual exhibit.

Reunion

This sub-series consists of both textual and photographic material pertaining to the Bedaux cowboys' relatives and friends reunion. The second edition of the book "Bannock and Beans" written by Bob White, a cowboy on the Bedaux expedition, and edited by Jay Sherwood, was launched at this time with extracts being read by Mr. Sherwood. During the reunion the 4th annual Paddle for the Peace event took place which celebrates and raises awareness about the beauty and historical significance of the river. Volunteers built a replica of the raft used by three of the Bedaux cowboys who travelled down the Peace River to join the expedition in Fort St. John. This new raft was launched and manned by two descendants of the original cowboys and one of the boatmen. Also included in this sub-series are photos of the actual reunion and those in attendance, and well as a page of text detailing the events that took place. This sub-series is arranged into three files: Book launch, Paddle for the Peace, and family cowboy reunion.
