Description of Contents

From Desolation Sound to Jervis Inlet, coastal British Columbia at its best. Canadian stories about the Sunshine Coast.

Boating, hiking, biking, and survival off the grid in coastal BC, where mountains drop into the ocean and people practice self-reliance and a different sense of purpose.

Life aboard a floating cabin on Powell Lake. Boating and kayaking on the region's lakes and the Strait of Georgia, and off-road riding on quad and motorcycle.

Two hundred cabins float on Powell Lake, serving as a backdrop for stories of locals who are isolated from the bustle of the surrounding world. Cabin access is by boat only. The lake is the scene of serious logging activity as well as recreation for the stout of heart with a desire for wilderness adventure.

These regional stories share common threads that paint a unique picture of the Powell River area and its inhabitants. Numerous maps and illustrations accompany the stories, broken into twenty-two chapters.
