About the authors

Chris Yorath is a retired professional geologist with more than 100 professional papers and four books to his credit. As a sailor in the local waters his interest in D’Arcy began with reading about Gulf Islands. He has made many visits to the island and was responsible for the finding of the original location of the colony; he also initiated plans to have a memorial placed at the site which is now a provincial park. He recently participated in the filming of the documentary Island of Shadows, the story of D’Arcy Island. He lives on Vancouver Island’s Saanich Peninsula with his wife, Linda.
