A BC Bestseller! Winner of the Jeanne Clark Award for Local History.
Winner: Jeanne Clark Local History Award (1999)
Book DescriptionIn Crazy Man's Creek, author Jack Boudreau tells of the characters who have "caught the fever" in the rugged McGregor Mountain Range east of Prince George. Long recognized as some of the toughest bush in British Columbia, it was home to many who chose to lose themselves.
Once there, life included confrontations with grizzly bears and raids by wolves. But if men were to snap, it was the long cold winters and the deafening silence that did them in.
