  • A great read for those interested in life in the Pacific Northwest Coast Interesting about how life was and the impacts on today Billy is a real character and great fun


  • This book reminded me of growing up in a small town A nice place to visit, but not much happens.A nice story about a nice man.


  • Although the book does a wonderful job of portraying what it was like to grow up and live in a remote archipelago of islands near Queen Charlotte Strait in B.C it s ultimate message is to show how over logging and over fishing have destroyed the natural resources of the area In one particular sound, chinook runs have gone from 300,000 in the 1930 s to exactly 68 fish at last count It s the lamentable story of the buffalo all over again.


  • This is an amazing book Very informative and insightful on the ecosystem of the BC west coast I would recommend this book to people who would like to learn on the topic I received a free copy of this book from the First Reads program Thanks for sending me this great book.
