Be Part of the Legacy as Ryan Wahl Presents New Book

Posted: Tuesday, October 14, 2008

Join local author Ryan Wahl for a special book event with a slide show presentation at Coho Books (1074 Shoppers Row, Campbell River). Saturday, October 25th, 2008 at 4:00pm. Legacy in Wood is a detailed portrait of master boat builder Ed Wahl and the important role his family business played in the creation of British Columbia's fishing industry.



Ryan Wahl was raised in Prince Rupert and the nearby community of Dodge Cove, Digby Island. He is the great-grandson of Ed Wahl and spent his childhood building toy boats from scrap lumber piled by the bandsaw. In his late teens he helped in the construction of the last Wahl boat, Legacy; the end result inspired this book. He lives in Nanaimo, British Columbia, with his wife, Lori.
