Whether readers are interested in logging history, a good yarn or folk art, they will be enthralled by Now You're Logging, British Columbia's first graphic novel and a enduring West Coast classic, published in celebration of what would have been Bus Griffiths' 100th birthday.

Now You're Logging is the story of Al and Red, who go to work in a small West Coast logging show during the dirty thirties. As they learn their trades, the reader is treated to an amazingly detailed view of the camp's varied operations—falling and bucking timber by hand, topping and rigging of spar trees, moving steam donkeys and making up log booms, plus all the colourful characters, camaraderie, romance and life-threatening exploits of a BC adventure story.

About the author

Bus Griffiths (1913-2006) was raised in Vancouver and came
to live in Fanny Bay in 1944. He worked for decades in the logging
industry all over the Fraser Valley and BC Coast, primarily as a faller.
