Description

In this groundbreaking portrait of the uneasy state of the province, Terry Glavin's lyrical narratives reveal the fibre of a British Columbia rarely glimpsed. With journalistic acumen, he surveys a landscape of inexorable suburban sprawl, dismantled railway lines, scapegoating of Native fisheries, and strange goings?on at Gustafsen Lake. A new breed of travelogue, This Ragged Place will leave the taste of oolichan grease on your lips and the seeds of a transcendent new British Columbian mythology in your mind. This Ragged Place earned Glavin a Governor General's Award finalist distinction in 1997.
