Raincoast Chronicles First Five

Collector's Edition
edited by Howard White
Raincoast Chronicles First Five sold out its first printing in two weeks. Since then it has sold well over 30,000 copies.

Book Description

A book that has become a west coast institution - articles, stories, poems, drawings covering every imaginable aspect of northwest history and folklore. The first five issues of Raincoast Chronicles, dating back to 1972.

Winner of the first Eaton's British Columbia Book Award, this is the innovative institution at the heart of BC regional publishing. Northwest history and folklore, unromanticized, in a unique magazine format, blending reminiscences, articles, drawings, photos. . .

"The best source book available on Canada's west coast."
-Books in Canada

"Utterly absorbing. . . until Raincoast Chronicles came along the fabulous west coast rum-runners and ghost logging camps went unrecalled save in the dimming memories of oldtimers."
-Maclean's

"The magazine is a thoroughly professional production in terms of design, layout and graphics, and the quality of the writing is just as impressive."
-Quill and Quire

"Raincoast Chronicles reveals western identity. . . as dense as the undergrowth in the rainforest, and as richly alive."
-CBC Radio

"Still my favourite magazine"
-Lorne Parton
