FISHING WITH GUBBY Kim La Fave and Gary Kent


ishing with Gubby is the marvelously illustrated, authentic account of one season in the life of a salmon fisherman. Based on actual events, the story is told by award-winning children’s illustrator Kim La Fave and former fisherman Gary Kent. Together they make the wharfs, boats, fishermen and villages of the BC coast come alive with remarkable detail and humour. Gubby is a salmon fisherman who lives with his wife Millie and cat Puss in a small seaside village on the west coast of British Columbia. He keeps his boat, the Flounder—a 36-foot west coast salmon troller—at a local wharf with many other boats. Gubby’s journey first takes him up BC’s west coast, through Georgia, Johnstone and Queen Charlotte straits and north past Port Hardy. He then heads into the open ocean towards treacherous Cape Scott, through to Winter Harbour and Quatsino Sound to settle in for a summer of fishing. Gubby and Puss face rolling rapids, rough and tumble storms and banks of fog, tussle with a basking shark and a pod of orcas, all while trolling for spring and coho salmon and visiting other fishermen and homesteaders along the way. Part graphic novel and part ocean adventure story in the style of Raymond Briggs, Fishing with Gubby not only depicts the salty BC coast, it captures the vanishing “golden age” when fishing was more than just a job—it was a way of life. Kim La Fave, a Governor General’s Award-winning artist, is the illustrator of Amos’s Sweater (by Janet Lunn) which won the Ruth Schwartz Children’s Book Award and the Amelia Frances HowardGibbon Award for illustration, Follow That Star (by Kenneth Oppel), I Am Small (by Sheree Fitch), the bestselling The Bones and Skeleton Book (by Steven Cumbaa), Boys, Girls and Body Science (by Meg Hickling) and many other children’s books. He lives in Roberts Creek, BC. Gary Kent grew up in Vancouver and received his BA from the University of British Columbia. He was a commercial fisherman and salmon troller for nine years and is now a furniture maker and instructor at the Inside Passage School of Fine Woodworking. He lives in Roberts Creek, BC. Fishing with Gubby is his first book.

ike McCardell is an institution in BC television with his antinews stories of oddball inspiration that close the News Hour on Global BC. Lately he has become a publishing institution as well with his series of heartwarming books full of stories about the ways in which ordinary people cope with extraordinary challenges. Fresh from 2009’s bestselling The Expanded Reilly Method, he is back with another winner in Everything Works. In his new book, McCardell reveals how to rekindle the thrill and pride we once felt as children when carrying, under one arm, that small treasure of good books from the library. Everything Works finds the storybook tales of real life—the simple adventures that bring happiness to those who discover them. For McCardell, it’s looking for that something good; that something you can talk about, share, or even remember and tell someone a week later. A good story does not grow old. From the moment he rediscovered the magic of picture books, television changed for McCardell. He began looking for a pink alligator or someone planting daffodils in February. His rules for television became applicable to his daily life: 1) Everything works. 2) Continuity (very big in television) is for wimps. 3) Any kid who stands in front of the camera gets on television. 4) Good people make good stories. 5) And the most important rule: Repeat number one. Everything Works seeks out the pink alligators and winter daffodils of our everyday lives. It searches for the grimy, mean-looking kid who holds the door open for a man with a walker, or the little girl who puts mittens on the stick arms of a snowman. Everything Works encourages readers to find one good, oddball, sweet, funny, neat, friendly, positive, pretty or mind-blowing thing each day, and to share that story with someone else. What a storybook world we could create!

Mike McCardell has earned the loyalty of hundreds of thousands of fans for his tongue-in-cheek investigative reporting and humaninterest stories. He is the author of the bestselling Chasing the Story God, Back Alley Reporter, Getting to the Bubble, The Expanded Reilly Method and The Blue Flames That Keep Us Warm, a national bestseller and BC Book Prize finalist.

Campbell River

Gateway to the Inside Passage Including Strathcona, the Discovery Islands and the Mainland Inlets Ian Douglas, photos by Boomer Jerritt


Local Interest / Travel / Photography ISBN 13: 978-1-55017-501-1 ISBN 10: 1-55017-501-7 8½" x 11", 144 pages, cloth 200 colour photographs $34.95



ampbell River is a modern city of 30,000 on the east coast of Vancouver Island that still retains an aura of the frontier, a result of its status as gateway to the wilder reaches of the upper BC coast. Although the community has roots in mining, fishing and logging, it has long been a recreational centre, famous for the size of its “Tyee” salmon. Campbell River is three books in one: it blends the city’s fascinating history, contemporary life and breathtaking scenery into one volume. The informative text by local writer Ian Douglas features the area’s rich First Nations culture and key pioneers along with modern-day artists, business people and community leaders. We meet Charles Thulin, the “father of Campbell River,” who came to the area in 1904 and built the town’s first hotel and store; and writer, sport fisher and conservationist Roderick Haig-Brown, whose home has become a BC Heritage Site and literary landmark. We explore areas around the city including Mittlenatch Island, a seabird colony and nature reserve nicknamed the “Galapagos of the Gulf of Georgia” and majestic Strathcona Park, BC’s oldest provincial park. Quadra Island resident and author Ian Douglas interviewed dozens of locals to bring to life the community of Campbell River and the surrounding islands, and award-winning photographer Boomer Jerritt skilfully illustrates the story with breathtaking photographs of the people, places and wildlife that make this part of Vancouver Island unique. The result is a beautiful coffee-table book that celebrates the beauty of the region, and the people—past and present—that have made the area the special place it is today. Ian Douglas is the co-author of Exploring Quadra Island: Heritage Sites and Hiking Trails (with Jeanette Taylor), and has been published in Sail, Pacific Yachting, Cottage Magazine and West Coast Mariner. He lives in Heriot Bay, BC. Boomer Jerritt is a graduate of the Western Academy of Photography and recipient of the Freeman Patterson award. His photographs are also featured in The Comox Valley: Courtenay, Comox, Cumberland and Area. He lives in Comox, BC, and teaches photography at North Island College.

Adventures in Solitude

What Not to Wear to a Nudist Potluck and Other Stories from Desolation Sound Grant Lawrence “By turns hilarious, terrifying, profound and strange, this is the great lost Canadian adventure story; Swiss Family Robinson as if rendered by Ken Kesey in his youth, a kind of Lord of the Flies through a fog of BC Chronic.” —Dave Bidini


rom Captain George Vancouver to Muriel “Curve of Time” Blanchet to Jim “Spilsbury’s Coast” Spilsbury, visitors to Desolation Sound have left behind a trail of books endowing the area with a romantic aura that helps to make it British Columbia’s most popular marine park. In this hilarious and captivating book, CBC personality Grant Lawrence adds a whole new chapter to the saga of this storied piece of BC coastline. Young Grant’s father bought a piece of land next to the park in the 1970s, just in time to encounter the gun-toting cougar lady, leftover hippies, outlaw bikers and an assortment of other characters. In those years Desolation Sound was a place where going to the neighbours’ potluck meant being met with hugs from portly naked hippies and where Russell the Hermit’s school of life (boating, fishing, and rock ’n’ roll) was Grant’s personal Enlightenment—an influence that would take him away from the coast to a life of music and journalism and eventually back again. With rock band buddies and a few cases of beer in tow, an older, cooler Grant returns to regale us with tales of “going bush,” the tempting dilemma of finding an unguarded grow-op, and his awkward struggle to convince a couple of visiting kayakers that he’s a legit CBC radio host while sporting a wild beard and body wounds and gesticulating with a machete. With plenty of laugh-out-loud humour and inspired reverence, Adventures in Solitude delights us with the unique history of a place and the growth of a young man amidst the magic of Desolation Sound.

A Chip Off the Old Black Arthur Black


rthur Black’s voice is unmistakable on the radio and on the page. His is the voice of reason, with a generous helping of funny; the voice that scolds us for our universal human quirks, but who says it with the tone and words that make us laugh out loud at ourselves and our neighbours. A Chip Off the Old Black, Black’s latest collection of stories, will knock a sense of humour into any reader, boasting nearly a hundred tales featuring everything from yarnbombing to Bambi, from Black’s love of the Farmer’s Almanac to his loathing of snowmobiles and his . . . problem . . . with David Suzuki. With a talent for ranting, minus the malice, Black sticks up for the chocolate-covered marshmallow confection of New Zealand— the politically-incorrect “Eskimo” candies. Those inclined to kvetching—a Yiddish word describing the tendency to complain persistently about everything—may just reconsider after reading A Chip Off the Old Black. After all, as Black demonstrates, it’s far more enjoyable to take the opportunity to laugh. Arthur Black’s growing collection of award-winning books includes Pitch Black, Black Tie and Tales and Black in the Saddle Again, all of which won him the Stephen Leacock Memorial Medal for Humour. He hosted CBC Radio One’s Basic Black program from 1983 until 2002, while also using his comedic talents to host Life Television Network’s Weird Homes and Weird Wheels. His recent books include Black is the New Green and the audio CD, Planet Salt Spring, which features tales from his adopted home of Salt Spring Island, BC.

A Walk With the Rainy Sisters In Praise of British Columbia’s Places Stephen Hume


his book is a lyrical testament to a great love affair between the writer and his region. In A Walk with the Rainy Sisters, one of British Columbia’s favourite authors writes with passion about his favourite topic—the geography of British Columbia. Stephen Hume guides readers through the natural world, moving from the thin, cold air of British Columbia’s high country to the fecundity and silence of the deep rainforest. He writes of the iridescence of dragonflies dancing out brief lives above summer ponds and the brittle forests of glass sponges growing in the lightless depths of the continental shelf, where they have flourished undisturbed since the Jurassic. Hume contemplates the meaning of rain; the tawny islets in the Salish Sea; what the night sky tells us about our place in time; people who choose to live at the margins and the relentless passage of lives and seasons, loss and renewal. “What Hume has forgotten about this province is more than most journalists will ever know,” wrote Terry Glavin. Roberta Morris wrote, “He unburies language.” A Walk with the Rainy Sisters invites readers once again to share the author’s love and awe of this province. Stephen Hume was raised in fishing, farming and logging communities across BC and studied at the University of Victoria. Hume has been a columnist at the Vancouver Sun for more than 20 years. His poetry, essays and journalism have won more than a dozen awards. Other books include Raincoast Chronicles 20: Lilies and Fireweed, Bush Telegraph, Off the Map and Simon Fraser: In Search of Modern British Columbia, winner of the Roderick HaigBrown prize in 2009. He also teaches writing at the University of Victoria and Vancouver Island University.

n this fascinating collection Canada’s most entertaining sportswriter revisits the glories of a career following sporting events and personalities that spanned five decades. Name any memorable event—from Canada-Russia 1972 to Rick Hansen’s Man in Motion tour—or any famous name from Wayne Gretzky to Muhammad Ali to the San Diego Chicken, and Jim Taylor was there giving his insightful, witty and often sceptical take on the subject. As Taylor writes, “when sport makes instant millionaires out of kids who can hit a ball or a puck with a stick or stuff a leather balloon through a fishnet, what’s not to laugh?” Here are tales of good guys and jerks, journeymen and giants playing games for a living with the world peering into the fishbowl and bigger, stronger, faster challengers coming at them every year. Here too are the true originals, such as boxing legend Archie “The Mongoose” Moore, who fought his last pro fight at the age of 72; Sam Snead, the barefoot hillbilly who learned to play golf by hitting rocks with a stick and went on to win 135 tournaments; Willie O’Ree, the black New Brunswicker who broke the NHL’s colour bar; tragic Percy Williams, the pint-sized sprinter who won double gold at the Amsterdam Olympics and later shot himself; and plenty of lesser-known heroes like the local legend Joe Johnson, who introduced a generation of BC kids to the love of soccer. Both a retrospective of memorable goings-on in the sports world of the last fifty years and a first-rate read, And to Think I Got in Free! stands as proof that in the right hands sports writing can be great writing. Jim Taylor has produced some 7,500 sports columns, three times as many radio shows and 14 books. His passionate sports writing has earned him membership in the CFL and BC Sports Halls of Fame and a lifetime achievement award from Sports Media Canada. Some of his recent books include Goin’ Deep: The Life and Times of a CFL Quarterback with Matt Dunigan and “Hello, Sweetheart? Gimmie Rewrite!”: My Life in the Wonderful World of Sports.

A Victorian Childhood Remembered Helen Piddington


umble Seat is an evocative, poetically-written memoir of artist Helen Piddington’s childhood in the Victoria suburb of Esquimalt—and what a childhood it was! The Piddingtons arrived from Quebec in 1924, and settled into a life that in many ways typified well-off Victoria families of the period. Helen’s father, Major Arthur Grosvenor Piddington, was a bit of an eccentric whose preferred attire, after his British army blazer, was jodhpurs and riding coat or drill shorts with knee socks held up by brightlycoloured garters. He dabbled in gentlemanly pursuits such as sheep ranching but his true passion was riding. Helen’s mother was “expected to make and receive social calls and entertain with tea parties, dinners and dances” but she had help—a governess, a nanny, a housemaid, a cook and faithful Tim the gardener. The Piddingtons occupied an imposing home designed by Victoria’s favourite residential architect, Charles Maclure, with a grand entrance hall and private garden, tennis court, stables, paddock and meadows bordered by golf links. Family amusements included hosting garden fetes, playing tennis and polo, summering at Savira, their cottage on Shawnigan Lake and motoring in their mother’s Morris roadster—the one with the coveted rumble seat. During the 1930s the Piddington’s life of privileged comfort vanished thanks to the Great Depression and Major Piddington’s bad luck in business. From then on the elder Piddingtons were forced to look after their vast brood themselves, the Major growing their food and Mrs. P. belatedly learning to cook, keep house and care for Helen, her youngest child. Difficult as the adjustment was, there was new satisfaction to be found in sharing and making do. With sharp descriptions of the artifacts, mannerisms and characters recalled from her early years, Helen Piddington’s Rumble Seat is a captivating record of a way of life gone by and a valuable addition to the social history of British Columbia. Helen Piddington is a renowned printmaker and artist whose work has been shown around the world. In 1975 she and her husband moved to remote Loughborough Inlet on the coastal mainland of BC, and have lived there ever since. Her first book, The Inlet, is about her experiences living on this remote part of the West.

Glaciers, Bears and Totems

Sailing in Search of the Real Southeast Alaska Elsie Hulsizer


arine writer Elsie Hulsizer, whose Voyages to Windward unlocked the mysteries of cruising Vancouver Island’s west coast, now does the same for that other great unknown of West Coast cruising, Southeastern Alaska. Having avoided the Alaskan challenge for years, Elsie and her husband Steve set out on the trusty Osprey on May 14, 2006, and spent the next three summers sailing, writing and photographing the towering fjords, immaculate glaciers, throwback fishing villages and overexposed tourist traps of America’s largest state. They drifted past calving glaciers, watched bears feeding in green marshes, smelled the fresh cedar of newly carved totem poles and followed the path of gold prospectors on the White Pass and Yukon Route Railroad. Sometimes it was difficult to discern the real Alaska beneath the façade, but Hulsizer finds it in many places, from the wild beauty of the ocean to the small coastal villages she visits and, sometimes, even where the tourists go. Glaciers, Bears and Totems is a rich book of adventure travel that is as valuable for its reading fun as for its travel information.

An environmental professional with a degree in oceanography, Elsie Hulsizer lives in Seattle, Washington with her husband Steve. She has a certificate in fine art photography from the Photographic Center Northwest and has exhibited her art in various galleries. She is also the author of Voyages to Windward: Sailing Adventures on Vancouver Island’s West Coast.

ne of Chris Czajkowski’s first priorities when she arrived at Nuk Tessli, a remote location in BC’s Coast Mountains, was to devise a way to bake bread. At first, she lived in a tent and her oven was a simple pile of rocks with a hole in the middle. But as she built her wilderness cabins and started providing for the clients of her wilderness adventure business, she perfected her stone oven and her recipes—and word began to spread of Nuk Tessli and the “Best Bread in the World.” From tangy sourdough loaves of freshly ground grain, Nuk Tessli Fruit Bread sweetened with hearty molasses and aromatic spices, to Montreal bagels with an alpine touch, here are inspiring, adventurous recipes that bypass the bread machine. Also included are quick breads and desserts, like a hearty trail mix cake—perfect on a hike—and Nuk Tessli’s enigmatic spotted dick, plus a few indispensable recipes for any wilderness dweller (or frugal urbanite), such as fresh yogurt and sprouts. A Wilderness Dweller’s Cookbook is not just a collection of recipes; it’s also a fascinating account of how a wilderness dweller—in a non-growing climate 20 km from a road, 60 km from a store, and 250 km from a town large enough to have a supermarket—feeds herself and her guests. Of particular interest to readers with their own wilderness dreams will be Czajkowski’s descriptions of the logistics of getting wholesome, fresh food to the table in this remote and spectacular location. Chris Czajkowski has lived off the grid for more than a quarter of a century. She currently operates the Nuk Tessli Alpine Experience, an ecotourism business catering to hikers and naturalists near the southern tip of Tweedsmuir Provincial Park in British Columbia’s Coast Mountains. Her wilderness and cabin-building experiences have been documented in several bestselling books, including Cabin at Singing River, Snowshoes and Spotted Dick: Letters from a Wilderness Dweller, Diary of a Wilderness Dweller, Wildfire in the Wilderness, and most recently, A Mountain Year: Nature Diary of a Wilderness Dweller.

Hope Lives Here

A History of Vancouver’s First United Church Bob Burrows


o church in Canada has generated more news coverage for more years than Vancouver’s First United. That has everything to do with its location in the heart of the infamous Downtown Eastside and with its role as caregiver and defender of the poor, the needy and the homeless inhabitants of Canada’s poorest postal code. Like Mother Teresa’s mission to the slums of Calcutta, the First United seizes its position among the marginalized as an opportunity to serve and has proven a shining example of humanitarian activism for 125 years. Famous for its defence of the jobless poor during the Great Depression under the leadership of the Rev. Andrew Roddan, it is now equally renowned as a bastion of support for modern-day street people with more complicated problems. With its roots in the early Presbyterian and Methodist Church Missions established in Vancouver in 1885 and 1888, the history of the First United Church spans that of the city it resides in. During that time it has seen the area around it and the population it serves undergo tremendous changes, as initial generations moved out to the suburbs, and the congregation assisted with the settling of newcomers from all over the world. In this well-written and lively account, Burrows, himself a United Church minister for over four decades, brings his lifetime of commitment and compassion to the remarkable history of the First United Church in Hope Lives Here. Bob Burrows began his work on the British Columbia coast as minister and captain of a mission boat based at Ocean Falls in 1960. From 1962 to 1966 he was the missionary-pilot of the church’s Cessna aircraft based in Alert Bay. For the next eight years he was minister and superintendent of First United Church in Vancouver. He received an honorary Doctor of Divinity degree from the University of Toronto in 2001 in recognition of a lifetime of service to the United Church and his community. Bob Burrows is also the author of Healing in the Wilderness: A History of the United Church Mission Hospitals. He lives in Vancouver, BC.

In one story, he and his RCMP escort get more than they bargain for during a patrol of hunting camps as they find their loaded dogsleds plunging over a massive waterfall, which is only navigable owing to the fact it is frozen solid. Time and again the Billingtons are awoken in the wee hours to find a life-threatening emergency unfolding before their sleepy eyes, which frequently ends by lighting a makeshift airstrip with rolls of toilet paper soaked in kerosene so a steel-nerved bush pilot can be summoned on a pitch-dark mercy flight to the hospital in Inuvik. Through it all Keith and Muriel become ever closer to the Gwich’in people of the North who serve as foster grandparents to their growing family and in whose life dramas the Billingtons inevitably become involved. In this book Keith and Muriel return to their northern haunts after the passage of more than a quarter century and learn the endings to many of the stories started in the first book. They are moved beyond tears to discover their old medical post in Fort McPherson replaced by a modern two-storey facility named for their faithful Gwich’in assistant, William Firth. Grippingly written and infused with great warmth, Cold Land, Warm Hearts is an absorbing adventure story that rounds out the Billingtons’ Arctic saga with a deepened understanding of the far North and its people.

Beyond the Chilcotin

On the Home Ranch with Pan Phillips Diana Phillips


ioneers Pan Phillips and his partner Rich Hobson carved their places in ranching history when they discovered “grass beyond the mountains” in the far reaches of the Chilcotin. Thanks to a series of hugely popular books, their exploits became the stuff of legend and Phillips became one of Canada’s enduring folk heroes. But if a man had to be tough to survive some of the roughest living in creation, what did a young girl have to be? This is the story of Pan Phillips’ daughter Diana, who learned to trap muskrat when she was little more than a toddler, worked with haying crews before she was into her teens and was renowned as the only person feisty enough to best her legendary father in a slanging match. Diana Phillips sold her ranch and moved to Vanderhoof in 2004. She has three sons and ten grandchildren all living in the area and still works in the cattle industry. Beyond the Chilcotin is her first published work. Local Interest / History / Memoir • ISBN 978-1-55017-528-8 • 6" x 9", 304 pages, paper • b&w photos • $19.95 • September

The Story of the Ironworkers Memorial Bridge Eric Jamieson WINNER OF THE 2008 LIEUTENANT GOVERNOR’S MEDAL FOR HISTORICAL WRITING


n June 17, 1958, Vancouver experienced the worst industrial accident in its history when the new bridge being built across Burrard Inlet collapsed into the flooding tidal waters of Second Narrows, killing eighteen workers. The shocking thing was that the bridge was not an old, decrepit structure, but a new one just in the midst of being erected with all the support and security modern engineering could provide. That somebody had made a colossal error seemed obvious, but it would take a Royal Commission to discover how and why. For over thirty years Eric Jamieson made his living as a banker. Tragedy at Second Narrows is his second book; he is also the author of South Pole—900 Miles on Foot. Jamieson lives in North Vancouver.

The Chimney Stone Rob Winger


n this eagerly anticipated follow-up to his award-winning, critically lauded debut, Rob Winger’s sophomore collection, The Chimney Stone, bends the contemporary lyric into startling new shapes. Concentrating on a splendid mess of headlines, wars, politics, relationships and artistic influences, Winger’s ghazals ask us how to negotiate the complex commitments and chaotic tumult of our daily lives. Making use of the ghazal’s original address to both a secular lover and a sacred ethics, Winger’s four sections move from examinations of gender in “Iron John” and “Bloody Mary,” to an ironic investigation of common experience in “Idiot Wind,” to a record of both human rights abuses and personal epiphany in “Blind Date.” In the process, Winger not only engages in dialogue with other poets—John Thompson, Phyllis Webb, Adrienne Rich, Ghalib, and more—but also welcomes other voices, measures, and musical phrases into his couplets. Here, Rimbaud rubs shoulders with Joe Strummer and David Byrne; Dylan exchanges one-liners with Gaston Bachelard; Johnny Cash spars with the Fisk Jubilee Singers; and Gretzky makes a pass to a smooth right winger.  Drifting from razor-carved sternums, to Lhasa runways, to Southeast Asian temples and beaches, to eighteenth-century shipwrecks, bloody tanks, rusty apartheid, blind genocide and burning teddy bears, The Chimney Stone urges us to re-examine not only how we order the contemporary world, but also how we become its citizens or revolutionaries, grandparents or kids, protestors or politicians. Ethically charged, tenderly observed, and masterfully realized, Winger’s poems are a vital addition to the ghazal’s continued evolution.

hristian McPherson’s debut novel The Cube People pokes fun at government cubicle culture through the life and times of a struggling computer programmer/novelist wannabe. McPherson surrounds his protagonist, Colin MacDonald, with a cast of screwball characters while he toils away at his government job, struggles with fertility and dreams of becoming a published writer.

Part tragedy, part comedy—with a bit of horror thrown in for fun—McPherson cooks up a boiling plot and a memorable anti-hero.

Gillian Wigmore

rayling, the fiction debut by award-winning poet Gillian Wigmore, is a novella that follows a couple as they descend the Dease River in northwestern BC. With acutely spare storytelling, Wigmore teases out the nuances between a man and a woman as they meet, travel together, dodge rocks in a boulder garden, and fish their way down the river. Both characters have recently set themselves adrift from previous lives—and both desire to know what or who they should anchor themselves to. They struggle for power on the river, negotiating sex and rhetoric on the sandbanks and in the canoe. Ultimately their five days together culminate with the inevitable choice to come ashore or stay on course. Gillian Wigmore grew up in Vanderhoof, BC and currently lives in Prince George. She has been published in Geist, CV2, filling station, and the Inner Harbour Review, among others. Her first poetry collection, Soft Geography (Caitlin), won the ReLit Award for Poetry and was shortlisted for the Dorothy Livesay BC Book Prize.

Whitewater Devils Adventure on Wild Waters Jack Boudreau


n 1967, in celebration of Canada’s 100th birthday, Les Voyageurs left Rocky Mountain House, Alberta, in ten 26-foot canoes. These one hundred gallant men, representing eight provinces and two territories, travelled 5,286 kilometres to Expo ’67 in Montreal. The trip took them across such major lakes as Winnipeg, Lake of the Woods, Superior, Nipissing, Huron and Georgian Bay and through 68 grueling portages. After 104 days of travel, the team from Manitoba paddled into the Expo site as the winners and claimed first prize. In Whitewater Devils Boudreau includes an unbelievable collection of adventures that take place on, in and below the raging rivers and mighty lakes of BC. There are the “grizzly” stories of wildlife photographer Leon Lorenz and the tales of Ian Norn, whose love of kayaking has taken him to roaring rapids and canyons that were out of the reach of humans just a few short years ago. Then there is diver Russ Logan, whose normal day on the job sends him swimming through 85 feet of 36-inch pipe beneath four feet of riverbed or, on another occasion, into the darkness of the Nechako River to remove a drowned moose that was caught in the trash rack of a pulp mill. In his eighth collection, Boudreau once again shares the stories of the brave, adventurous—sometimes foolhardy—men and women of Northern BC and beyond.

The Flying Fur Buyer of Anahim Lake Darcy Christensen with Sage Birchwater


ife has always been a bit of a gamble for Darcy Christensen. Born in Ocean Falls in 1929, he was raised in Bella Coola Valley and Anahim Lake on the Chilcotin Plateau. The Christensen family were among the earliest white settlers on the Central Coast and West Chilcotin and his maternal grandfather, John Clayton, was the Hudson’s Bay Company’s last trading post factor in Bella Coola. For over thirty years Darcy ran the general store in Anahim Lake that had been operated by his family for more than a century. In the 1970s Christensen bought a plane and took some flying lessons. Using his bush plane equipped with skis he delivered groceries to people living in the outlying area and purchased furs from trappers as far north as Babine and Takla Lake. In no time, he gained acclaim as the “Flying Fur Buyer” of the Cariboo Chilcotin. Christensen says, “All anyone had to do was wave a mink pelt at me and I’d land and buy their fur.” Whether it was playing poker as a youngster with the ranch hands on the Cless Pocket Ranch, doing stunts with his airplane, or flipping double or nothing with customers for a grocery order in his store, Darcy has always had a penchant for gambling. He says his jousts with Lady Luck helped break the boredom and monotony of life on the frontier. Double or Nothing is a journey into the West Chilcotin where Christensen describes his raw and adventurous life and his friendship and encounters with such legends as Pan Phillips, Lester Dorsey, Mickey Dorsey, Domas Squinas, Fred Engebretson and Clayton Mack. Darcy Christensen was born in Ocean Falls in 1929. He purchased the AC Christensen general store from his father in the ’60s and ran it for over three decades. In the ’70s he bought a plane, got a license to fly and became the only flying fur buyer in the region. He now lives in Williams Lake, BC. Sage Birchwater is the author of Chiwid and Williams Lake: Gateway to the Cariboo Chilcotin. He was a staff writer for the Williams Lake Tribune until 2009, and is the editor of Gumption & Grit: Extraordinary Women of the Cariboo Chilcotin (Caitlin Press, 2009). Sage still lives in Williams Lake, BC, and continues to write about the Chilcotin.

Edge of the Sound

Memoirs of a West Coast Log Salvager Jo Hammond


hen 25-year-old Jo climbed down the ramp of the freighter Canadian Star to set foot in Vancouver, BC, in the summer of 1967, she’d never heard of log salvaging. But within two-and-ahalf years, the immigrant from England would quit her teaching job and join forces with one of the most enigmatic salvagers of the Sunshine Coast. Dick and Jo Hammond spent a life together chasing logs, rescuing boaters in distress, and raising their two children in BC’s log salvaging mecca, Howe Sound. Combining Dick’s guidance and her stubborn nature to master all challenges, Jo learned to maneuver their salvage boat, drive dogs and tie knots, sing arias to the sea lions and suckle her child while chasing rogue logs. Edge of the Sound is both a love story and a tale of adventure between a man with an uncommonly high IQ who found his niche behind the wheel of a salvaging boat and a young woman searching for her own place in the world. Their bond was the risk of the wild and unpredictable sea, classical music, the beauty of the natural west coast and the rise and fall of tides that help and hinder their hunt for logs that have escaped between forest and mill. As they work against the forces of nature, Jo Hammond learns to change and she learns to “expect the unexpected.”

A Thoroughly Wicked Woman Murder, Perjury and Trial by Newspaper Betty Keller


n a foggy evening in November 1905, 48-year-old Thomas Jackson returned to his home on Melville Street in Vancouver after nine months of prospecting north of the Skeena. Jackson was happy because he had made an important gold strike. Four days later he was dead from strychnine poisoning. Any of the other four people living in the house on Melville Street could have slipped the poison into the mixture of Epsom salts and beer that Jackson took on the morning of his death. Reporters from Vancouver’s newspapers chose Jackson’s teary-eyed, fragile, 24-year-old wife, Theresa, as their first choice for the guilty party. Then as the days went by, their preference shifted to the dead man’s steely-eyed, light-fingered, American mother-in-law, Esther Jones. Suspicion also fell on the two boarders—Esther's nephew Harry Fisher and Ernest Exall. All of them had the opportunity to plant the poison. Eventually the police followed up on the newspapers’ revelations, the most important being that Harry Fisher was not Esther’s nephew but her son. Fisher fled to Washington, and in his absence his mother and sister were arrested—not for murder but for perjured testimony at the coroner’s inquest. What followed was a series of hearings and trials in the city’s courtrooms with fledgling lawyers trying to make their names in combat with the celebrated defence counsel Joseph Martin, KC. At the same time the newspapers, which were locked in a deadly circulation war, tried desperately to trump each other with juicy bits of information, all of it splashed on their front pages week after week. In the end the two women served time in the BC Penitentiary, but no one was ever tried for the murder of Thomas Jackson. Acclaimed writer Betty Keller has based her sensational story of murder and intrigue on actual events that occurred in Vancouver’s pre-World War I years. Betty Keller was born in Vancouver, BC, and moved to the Sunshine Coast in 1980. She is a teacher, mentor, editor and a writer, and has authored or co-authored seventeen books, including biographies, histories, plays and novels. She is a founder of the Sunshine Coast’s Festival of the Written Arts and the Writersin-Residence Program. Betty has won numerous awards for her literary work.

All Those Drawn to Me Christian Petersen


he junction of Highways 20 and 97 forms a rough right angle around which lies the city of Williams Lake. These are the coordinates by which Christian Petersen’s fiction can be charted. From the building of the Gaol at Soda Creek to ruminations on the origins of the Barkerville fire, All Those Drawn to Me explores the unpredictable, romantic and spiritual qualities of life in rural BC. The harshness of the wild west permeates Petersen’s second collection of short fiction. In the story “Horse from Persia,” a condemned man contemplates the injustice of life at his hanging speech: “I wished mightily that I could climb up on that horse and escape the sorrowful puzzle my days had become. For if it’s true time is a gift, mine was not altogether pleasant.” But Petersen is just as comfortable extrapolating truths from present-day life, as in “Laketown Breakdown” where a young man struggles to stay on the right side of the law while coping with the death of his parents. And in the title story, “All Those Drawn to Me,” Petersen creates a masterful blend, shifting from the gold rush to the contemporary with three motives, three lives and three battles with death on the treacherous waters of the Upper Quesnel River. Whether in the past or present, Petersen’s characters explore romance, poverty and spiritual quandaries as they wander amid the landscape and back streets of the dusty little cities of BC’s Central Interior.

Walk Myself Home

An Anthology to End Violence Against Women


Edited by Andrea Routley

here is an epidemic of violence against women in Canada and the world. For many women physical and sexual assault, or the threat of such violence, is a daily reality. Walk Myself Home is an anthology of poetry, fiction, nonfiction and oral interviews on the subject of violence against women including contributions by Kate Braid, Yasuko Thahn and Susan Musgrave. Walk Myself Home began as a small idea: to create a chapbook and sell it at the next LoudSpeaker Festival. The response was overwhelming. This small idea found a chorus of voices, and its sound was too big for a chapbook. Andrea Routley is the co-founder of Victoria, BC’s LoudSpeaker Festival, a festival of music, theatre and poetry in celebration of International Women’s Day. Walk Myself Home is her first anthology.

Still Fishin’

The BC Fishing Industry Revisited Alan Haig-Brown It is generally known that the West Coast’s once-great commercial fishing industry has fallen on hard times, but as Alan Haig-Brown demonstrates in this new book, reports of its demise are exaggerated.

These are Dal’s memories of the stars and the wannabes, the hustlers and bootleggers and hat check chicks, all of whom paraded through his life in the days when Vancouver’s nightclub scene rivalled San Francisco’s and Hollywood’s big-name performers made it a regular tour stop.

The Al Purdy A-Frame Anthology

Edited by Paul Vermeersch, introduction by Dennis Lee This is a book with a mission. On one level it is a celebration of the great Canadian poet Al Purdy by eminent writers who were his contemporaries. On another it is a celebration of the place that was the centre of Purdy’s writing universe—his lakeside A-frame cottage in Ameliasburgh, Ontario, where he lived for 43 years. The Purdy A-frame served as a kind of tribal mustering place for notable Canadian writers from the 1950s to the 1990s including Margaret Atwood, Michael Ondaatje, George Bowering, Margaret Laurence, Milton Acorn, Janet Lunn, Patrick Lane and a host of others. Proceeds from The Al Purdy A-Frame Anthology will go towards preserving the Purdy home as a retreat for future generations of Canadian writers. 8 x 8, 160 pages, paper • b&w photographs • 978-1-55017-502-8 • $26.95

Only in Whistler

From Fox Moths to Jet Rangers

Stephen Vogler is one of those rare Whistlerites who actually grew up in Whistler and he has for some years been running a one-man crusade to prove his hometown is not only a bona fide community, but a uniquely interesting one. Gradually the “high” spirits of the incoming snow hippies melded with the soberer tradition of the transplanted Tyroleans to produce a hybrid “only in Whistler” character that is equally devoted to serious skiing and unserious living. 6 x 9, 240 pages, paper • 50 b&w photographs • 978-1-55017-504-2 • $24.95

From Fox Moths to Jet Rangers is a memorable story from Canada’s bush flying heritage. Harvey Evans was only eighteen years old when he earned his commercial pilot’s licence in 1952, just as the aviation industry was emerging from the shadow of WWII, and he racked up an impressive 20,000 hours of flying time before filing his final flight plan in 1994. It was a remarkable and distinguished career that began in the old days of bush flying, then moved on to the early days of commercial helicopter work and extended into the time of flying by computer. 6 x 9, 264 pages, paper • 40 b&w photos • 978-1-55017-526-4 • $26.95

Cold sleep permanent afternoon Ray Hsu

Cold Sleep Permanent Afternoon, the follow-up to Ray Hsu’s award-winning first collection, Anthropy, is the second book in a prospective trilogy that explores the “grammar of personhood.” Whereas Anthropy approached the human condition through the prism of first-, second- and third-person perspectives, Cold Sleep Permanent Afternoon uses the grammatical concepts of singular and plural as grid-lines to chart contemporary life and concerns both harrowing and humane. Extending from this principal division, Hsu explores the borders between civic engagement and domesticity, dissent and accord, freedom and restriction—each of these are tested against another and framed by the tension between the collective and the individual. With Cold Sleep Permanent Afternoon, Ray Hsu presents our landscape in stark light, confronting the human drama that is manifesting within our lives, and investigating how we make sense of ourselves and the world we have wrought. 5½ x 8, 96 pages, paper • 978-0-88971-244-7 • $17.95

other poems Jay MillAr

Jay MillAr’s poetry resists classification. This book, being a collection of Other Poems, is an assemblage of seemingly disparate materials—the poems are of various lengths, subjects and origins and were composed over the past ten years of this prolific author’s life. Reading this book is likened to finding a box of photographs in a thrift store; here lies a miscellany of meaning that offers an intimate view of MillAr’s “direct manner of spoken mind.” Jay MillAr is a Toronto poet, editor, publisher and virtual bookseller. He is the author of the small blue (2007), False Maps for Other Creatures (2005), Mycological Studies (2002), and The Ghosts of Jay MillAr (2000). His most recent collection is esp : accumulation sonnets (2009). In 2006, he published Double Helix, a collaborative novel written with Stephen Cain. He is also the author of many chapbooks and privately published editions such as Lack Lyrics, which tied to win the 2008 bpNichol Chapbook Award. MillAr is the shadowy figure behind BookThug, a publishing house dedicated to exploratory work by well-known and emerging North American writers, as well as Apollinaire’s Bookshoppe, a virtual bookstore that specializes in the books that no one wants to buy. Currently MillAr teaches Creative Writing and Poetics at George Brown College. 5¼ x 8½, 120 pages, paper • 978-0-88971-242-3 • $17.95

patternicity Jim Johnstone

As a physiologist currently completing his Ph.D. at the University of Toronto, Johnstone’s work is informed by a scientific approach, his own corporeal environment and an exploration of “the unreliability of language, regardless of how it’s relayed.” Jim Johnstone obtained his M.Sc. in Reproductive Physiology from the University of Toronto, where he is currently a doctoral candidate. He is a two-time winner of the E. J. Pratt Medal and Prize in Poetry, the recipient of a 2008 CBC Literary Award and his work has been broadcast on CBC Radio’s Between the Covers and published in Canadian periodicals such as The Fiddlehead, Grain and PRISM International.

histories haunt us Triny Finlay

In Triny Finlay’s second collection of poetry, she asks what it means to let in the ghosts of the past. Will memories loosen the frame of a life? Will subtle fears take over? Finlay plumbs the depths of family life as she negotiates the territories of ancestry, love and new motherhood: a great-grandmother who went to bed for seventeen years; a lover caught with somebody else; a son’s critical illness—things that “encroach, they devastate, so that you must decide: you are an anchor or you are not.” This is a fragile world, in which rivers overflow and fear can become paralyzing. But there is hope here, too, for the “lusty aria” of the newborn child, for “a look we might have missed, in a different room,” for the falling leaves that return to the ground, that recover us. 5½ x 8, 80 pages, paper • 978-0-88971-247-8 • $17.95

Joe Denham’s first collection Flux (page 71) was published in 2003. He is a poet with an international scope, having been anthologized in Open Field (New York), New Canon (Montreal), Jailbreaks (Ontario), Breathing Fire 2: Canada’s New Poets (BC) and In Fine Form. He works as a fisherman and lives with his family in Halfmoon Bay, BC. 5¼ x 7½, 72 pages, paper • 978-0-88971-243-0 • $17.95

How do we reconcile story with fact? What must one lose for the other to exist? In this debut collection, Rowe explores the nature of mythology and how it morphs in time to retain cultural and personal significance. Folk tales, supernatural creatures, family histories and personal elegies come together to expose the cohabitation of the dead and the living; the relationship between cold absence and stark presence. Stephen Rowe was a finalist for the Fresh Fish Award for Emerging Writers and his poetry has appeared in The Antigonish Review, CV2, Iota, The Newfoundland Quarterly, The Panhandler, Paragon, Rhythm Poetry Magazine, The Society 2008 and The Toronto Quarterly.

Simon Fraser

In Search of Modern British Columbia Stephen Hume winner of THE 2009 roderick haig-brown regional bc book prize

In 1808 seeking a navigable route to the western sea for the North West Company, Simon Fraser descended the great river that now bears his name. Most of us learn that much in school—but who was this blunt, tenacious man, and what drove him to make a dangerous journey halfway across an uncharted continent? Journalist and poet Stephen Hume followed in Fraser’s footsteps and canoe wake for four years. He studied fading maps and diaries in archives across North America, interviewed the descendants of people who aided Fraser and retraced Fraser’s route across British Columbia’s vast and varied landscape. Hume found Fraser’s own blazes and signs in the wild terrain that the Nor’wester crossed with the help of aboriginal peoples, all the way from the Rocky Mountains to the mouth of the ferocious river we call the Fraser. This is the story of diligent research and reconstruction of his route, the rigours of early 19thcentury travel and the peoples and places he saw and recorded. Simon Fraser is the story of Fraser’s great journey, but not solely from a historian’s or biographer’s pen. Hume writes with his usual lyrical power based on a profound knowledge of the landscape and history of BC. 978-1-55017-434-2 • 7 x 10, 336 pp, cl • colour & b&w photos and maps • $36.95

A History David Lee

“It rips, and cuts, it makes a horrible racket—a chainsaw is a frightening thing. I write not to glorify its terrible power but to acknowledge its place in the most sweeping revolution that technology has wrought in the 20th century—the revolution of individual empowerment.” So begins author David Lee in this first-ever book on the worldwide history of the chainsaw, an invention that transformed the forest industry and eventually became the indispensable companion of every red-blooded country dweller. From 600-pound steam-powered behemoths to gas chainsaws mounted on wheeled carriages to diesel chainsaws and electric chainsaws with portable generators, this book musters a curious collection of contraptions and inventors the like of which we haven’t seen since Those Magnificent Men in Their Flying Machines. Carefully tracing the evolutionary threads of countless short-lived pioneer devices, Lee works with a worldwide network of chainsaw buffs to trace the roaring, woodchip-and-oil-sprayed progress of what is now a lightweight modern machine that holds a place of honour in the world’s woodsheds. 11 x 10, 218 pp, cl • 200 colour & b&w photos, illustrations • 978-1-55017-380-2 • $49.95

His previous books of poetry are The Village of Sliding Time, How I Joined Humanity at Last and Crows Do Not Have Retirement.

He was born in Neepawa, Manitoba, and now lives in North Vancouver, B.C. THE FLY IN AUTUMN winner of the 2009 governor general’s award for poetry

The Fly in Autumn is a nuanced work that constantly shifts between the inane and the macabre, between black humour and self-mockery. From North Vancouver sleet and fog to palominos and Baghdad, from the inevitability of dying to the cockiness of flight, from Dick and Jane readers to insurance clerks, The Fly in Autumn willingly, knowingly, risks the reader’s unease by going beyond the usual contemporary mode into language that is more penetrating, more tender than ironic. 978-1-55017-468-7 • 6 x 9, 96 pages, paper • $18.95

When Nathan and Leah meet in Silva Landing, on the Sunshine Coast, in 1913, it is love at first sight; but they find their passion tested at every turn.

“an excellent resource that will make life easier for parents struggling to find the words to explain reproduction and sex to their children.” —Quill & Quire

With humour and sensitivity, Boys, Girls & Body Science provides no-nonsense answers for children—and parents—with questions about sex. Specifically designed for young readers, Boys, Girls & Body Science walks children through the wonders of their bodies in a direct, easy-to-read manner. The story begins with Nicholas, 7, and Jenny, 5, learning about different types of science in their class—from ecology to the digestive system. Then Meg Hickling, a guest speaker, comes to talk to them about a new type of science. Hickling talks about the “science names” for the children’s body parts, about good and bad touches and about making babies. She coaches the children not to be embarrassed or shy about body science: “We are going to make this just like a science lesson, we will learn to think like a scientist and we will learn the scientific names for our private parts,” she says.

a sequence of poetics

In Ken Belford’s fifth book of poetry he takes us on a journey through Canada’s roadless north where he looks out at industrialism and its impact on a region abundant in resources and natural beauty. ­ Lan(d)guage is an unsentimental and non-reactionary perspective, a deep investigation of the psychology of both the electronic revolution and postmodernism.
