Cowboy, logger, fisherman, writer, social activist, and grand adventurer! Sinclair’s fascinating life is set against the changing ranching, logging, fishing and mining industries that he wrote about and the publishing industry for which he wrote.

His story takes the reader from the old west of Montana, life in California, on to Vancouver and the logging community of Harrison, until his final move to the B.C. Sunshine Coast. It is here he buys his beloved, 37-foot Hoo Hoo and begins his 60-year love affair with Pender Harbour. Although he was christened William Brown Sinclair, the literary world knew him as Bertrand Sinclair, a writer with 15 novels, dozens of novelettes, and hundreds of short stories to his credit. Four of his adventure/romance novels have been made into movies. But in the communities around Pender Harbour, he was just called Bill.
