A volume of the West Coast's favorite book of history, lore, and backwoods culture, featuring the villages and ghost towns of the coast. There are stories of pioneering at Stillwater, George Draney's fishing and logging at Bella Coola, whaling in the Queen Charlottes and an adventure with a cannon in Lund. Listen to philosophy from Texada Island, and memories of childhood in Clo'oose. Take a 1937 trip on the CPR's Maquinna from Port Alberni up the west coast of Vancouver Island. And spend a day in Spry Camp, the town that disappeared.
A fascinating mix of prose, poetry, book reviews, artwork and photographs.
