Tour through the past and present of BC's coastal communities.
Coastal Villages is a gorgeous book of photographs, history and anecdotes about 24 picturesque British Columbian villages, including Lund, Campbell River, Quadra Island, Owen Bay, Hardwicke Island, Telegraph Cove, Alert Bay and Port Hardy.

Among the hundreds of colourful characters you'll meet the genius engine builder, Frank Osborne; Billy Assu the magnanimous Kwakiutl Chief who threw a party for 2,000 people; the Schnarr daughters who kept cougars for pets and Jack Myer the pistol-packing, dog-kicking bootlegger who hailed from the badlands of North Dakota and fatally shot a man in a shack on Read Island.
