About Us

Deep Cove Books assumed distribution of three books about the social and educational history of British Columbia from Bendall Books, a publishing and distribution company that ceased operations in November 2016. These books are:

  • Worlds Apart: British Columbia Schools, Politics, and Labour Relations Before and After 1972;
  • Schooling in British Columbia, 1949-2005: Voices from the Past;
  • School Leadership: Essays on the British Columbia Experience, 1872-1995.

These history books, written by educational historian Thomas Fleming, portray the experiences of children and teachers in British Columbia schools from the early days of the provincial frontier to the present day. They are directed at a wide and general readership interested in British Columbia’s educational past and the people who made the provincial school system what it is today. We hope readers will enjoy the rich stories and colourful anecdotes about the characters and events that have shaped our provincial schools since Confederation.
