Notes From The Century Before
A Journal From British ColumbiaBook - 1982
In 1966, Edward Hoagland made a three-month excursion into the wild country of British Columbia and encountered a way of life that was disappearing even as he chronicled it. Showcasing Hoagland's extraordinary gifts for portraiture--his cast runs from salty prospector to trader, explorer, missionary, and indigenous guide--"Notes from the Century Before" is a breathtaking mix of anecdote, derring-do, and unparalleled elegy from one of the finest writers of our time.
