Picked this book up at the Shuswap Lake International Writers' Festival in May, 2008. I have read the stories read that were read aloud,in part, by the authors at the Festival: Luanne Armstrong, Jan Drabek, Deanna Kawatski, Dawn Service.

There are 20 authors featured in this book. A few others are Harold Rhenisch, Margaret Thompson, Katherine Gordon...

Buy it! It's worth it!

This is a collection of short, non-fiction stories written about British Columbia, one of my favorite places in the world. It is not a travel guide, but really catures the beauty and spirit of this incredible land. Highly recommended for anyone with wanderlust!
