Harbour Publishing's Spring 2018 Preview

Posted: Monday, January 15, 2018 at 2:56pm

Harbour Publishing is presenting an array of new books this season that explore the rich history of BC and the people that call it home.

Published one hundred years after Canada’s first general strike in 1918, Rod Mickleburgh shares a comprehensive chronicle of the labour movement in British Columbia in On the Line. Geoff Meggs explores the turbulent Fraser River salmon strikes of 1900-1901 in Strange New Country and examines how this pivotal moment in history helped to shape modern British Columbia.

Go on an adventure through the Northern Rockies in Summer of the Horse as Donna Kane shares her passionate and honest journey of the wilderness and self discovery that comes from delving into the unknown. Get ready for Grizzlies, Gales and Giant Salmon, Pat Ardley’s memoir of strength and resilience in the remote BC wilderness and life at Rivers Inlet Fishing Lodge.

In Ranch in the Slocan the history of British Columba is explored further as award-winning geographer Cole Harris shares a biography of a Kootenay Farm from 1896-2017 and his family’s experiences farming in the Slocan Valley. The history and the voices of the Ts’elxwéyeqw First Nation are shared in Being Ts’elxwéyeqw, edited by David M. Schaepe.
