Living on the Edge
Nuu-chah-nulth History From An Ahousaht Chief's PerspectiveBook - 2003
Chief Earl Maquinna George, hereditary chief of the Ahousaht First Nation of Clayoquot Sound on the west coast of Vancouver Island, presents his compelling life story, told in his own words. As well as chronicling his life's experiences, this book offers a portrait of the issues and challenges faced by Aboriginal people in the 20th Century in Canada. It explains, from a First Nations' perspective, the deep attachments to their lands and resources, and their long standing quest for social and environmental justice. It is a deeply moving and fascinating portrait of a man whose name Maquinna reflects a lineage going back to the time of Captain Cook and for countless generations before recorded history.
