Beyond the Chilcotin

On the Home Ranch with Pan Phillips
Diana Phillips, daughter of Canadian folk hero Pan Phillips, relives her extraordinary upbringing on a remote, pioneer ranch in British Columbia's interior.

Book Description

Pioneers Pan Phillips and his partner Rich Hobson carved their places in ranching history when they discovered “grass beyond the mountains” in the far reaches of the Chilcotin. Thanks to a series of hugely popular books, their exploits became the stuff of legend and Phillips became one of Canada’s enduring folk heroes.

But if a man had to be tough to survive some of the roughest living in creation, what did a young girl have to be? This is the story of Pan Phillips’ daughter Diana, who learned to trap muskrat when she was little more than a toddler, worked with haying crews before she was into her teens and was renowned as the only person feisty enough to best her legendary father in a slanging match.
