Review in Pacific Yachting

"Coastal legend Bill Proctor gives us a guided tour of his stomping grounds, the islands and inlets between northern Vancouver Island and the central coast of BC. He's spent his lifetime on or near these waters, commercial fishing, logging and doing whatever he could to make a living. Along the way, this natural storyteller listened and learned and he now shares this knowledge with us. He points the way to hidden waterfalls, abandoned native villages and homesteads and the best coves for shelter in a storm. He recounts spellbinding, often hilarious tales of the characters in this part of the world. Brimming with coastal lore, maps and co-author Yvonne Maximchuk's delightful line drawings, this must have travel companion pays tribute to Bill's contemporaries who wrested a livelihood from forest and sea, while making passionate pleas to preserve his beloved wilderness."
