19 : Stories and History of the British Columbia CoastBook - 2003
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.
