Usually regarded as the first European known to have set foot in British Columbia, Captain James Cook reached Nootka Sound in 1778, four years after Juan Pérez had achieved the first known contact with Aboriginal people in B.C. With Lorraine Miller, Daniel Conner published Master Mariner: Captain James Cook and the Peoples of the Pacific (1978) exactly 200 years after Cook met Chief Maquinna at Yuquot. With Doreen Bethune-Johnson, an assistant professor emeritus of curriculum and enthnomusicology with the faculty of education at UBC, Conner also co-authored a grade four social studies text, Native People and Explorers of Canada (1984), as well as Our Coast Salish Way of Life: The Squamish (1986). Conner, a Vancouver school teacher, holds a Master's degree in modern history from Oxford and a Master's in Canadian History from UBC.
