Description

Another issue of British Columbia's favourite anthology has arrived, and like its predecessors, 'Raincoast Chronicles 12' features the variety and style that has made the series a BC publishing phenomenon. It includes stories from established favourites like Jim Spilsbury, Howard White and Edith Iglauer. It touches on subjects ranging from seineboats to waterbombers. It recounts mishaps from biplane crashes to the discovery of stray torpedoes. Illustrated with an assortment of photographs which, like the stories themselves, provide a lively reflection of life on the west coast.

Author Biography

Howard White was born in 1945 in Abbotsford, British Columbia. He was raised in a series of camps and settlements on the BC coast and never got over it. He is still to be found stuck barnacle-like to the shore at Pender Harbour, BC. He started Raincoast Chronicles and Harbour Publishing in the early 1970s. He has been awarded the Order of BC, the Canadian Historical Association's Career Award for Regional History, the Stephen Leacock Medal for Humour, the Jim Douglas Publisher of the Year Award and a Honorary Doctorate of Laws Degree from the University of Victoria. In 2007, White was made an Officer of the Order of Canada. He has twice been runner-up in the Whisky Slough Putty Man Triathlon.
