Seymour lies between the City of North Vancouver and Indian Arm and includes the communities of Dollarton, Deep Cove, the Tsleil-Waututh First Nation and the popular Mount Seymour winter sports complex. Compiled with the help of knowledgeable Seymour seniors of the Deep Cove Heritage Society, Echoes Across Seymour provides unparalleled insight into the history and character of each of Seymour's nineteen neighbourhoods. Readers will meet the crocodile-rearing Doc Hogan in Riverside East, hear tales of the sea serpent that claims the waters of Indian Arm as its home, play in the Northlands Golf Course that local supporters fought to make a success, and watch wistfully as Deep Cove transforms from a misted primeval forest to a charming suburban community.

Each neighbourhood's unique and detailed history is presented in a concise and captivating manner with a focus on facts and stories from the last fifty years. Delightful poems and charming photographs from the community's archives bring Seymour's history to life for newcomers to discover, and allows residents to reminisce about their own fond memories of the area. Echoes Across Seymour reveals a vibrant and modern community working to find the right balance between development and nature, celebrating its triumphs and embracing the challenges still to come.
