Description

A Pacific Northwest publishing tradition since 1972, the Raincoast Chronicles series is still a perennial favourite with its funny, fiery depictions of British Columbia's past. This latest issue includes more of what made Raincoast Chronicles famous--an eclectic and entertaining mix of stories and characters.

Sheryl Salloum contributes a fascinating history of squatters in Vancouver--from the Dollarton squat that Malcolm Lowry made infamous to the Finn Slough squat on the Fraser River that still exists, 70 years later. And let's not forget Peter Fletcher, a former Saturna Island light keeper, who tells us what it's like to have a diabolical pet crow almost destroy his marriage.

Editorial Reviews

"Eleven fasinating stories,...every one will engage your attention and widen your awareness of our coast."
-Annie Boulanger, The Royal City Record

— The Royal City Record

"As a vehicle for recording our elders' memories and a public display of archival photographs, Raincoast Chronicles preform the valuable service of making coastal history accessible to everyone and providing a prospective on modern life."
-Diana Mumford, Wave Length
