This pictorial map of northeastern British Columbia shows the fictitious route of David and Carol Renfrew to Wonder Valley, British Columbia. It was produced in conjunction with the "Renfrew of the Royal Mounted" radio show (1936-40), and allowed listeners to visually follow the adventure. The map shows the Renfrews adventure beginning in Point Regard, some 400 miles north of the nearest railroad, with their route winding its way up to the "Valley of Gold." The verso contains a letter to the listener, several photo illustrations, and an advertisement for Wonder Bread, who was the program sponsor. Drawn by George Annand. Self-folding.
