Stories and History of the British Columbia Coast
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


A Pacific Northwest publishing tradition since 1972, the "Raincoast Chronicles" series is still a perennial favourite with its funny, fiery depiction 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. Then there's Keith Hancock's strange-but-true story of Boat Harbour, BC's capital of the bizarre. Located between Ladysmith and Nanaimo on Vancouver Island, this small village is renowned for being the one-time home of the enigmatic cult leader Brother Twelve, and for its equally colourful later resident, 'Nick the Pirate' who had six toes and a habit of firing his personal cannon at unsuspecting trespassers. And let's not forget Peter Fletcher, a former Saturna Island lightkeeper, who tells us what it's like to have a diabolical pet crow almost destroy his marriage.
