Naomi Jackson Groves, A.Y.’s Canada: Drawings by A.Y. Jackson, Clarke, Irwin & Company Limited, Toronto, 1986, pages 172 and 174.
In A.Y.’s Canada, Naomi Jackson Groves recounts Jackson’s trip to this part of B.C., this “region of fable evocatively misspelled ‘Cariboo’ back in the gold rush days of 1960.” She opines: “We can be sure that the type of paydirt A.Y. struck there in the mid-1940’s contained as many good nuggets as any prospector uncovered - and A.Y.’s have probably afforded more lasting pleasure!”
