Photographs and Reminisciences of the BC Coast
"Spilsbury has a raconteur's eye for an anecdote, a keen sense of history, an earthy sense of humour, and a genuine interest in the people who lived and worked on the coast"
Book DescriptionReaders loved Jim Spilsbury's first two bestselling books, Spilsbury's Coast and The Accidental Airline. But Jim wanted to give them more pictures, so he pored through his archives and came up with over two hundred.
Spilsbury's Album is a fascinating look at life on the BC coast from World War One to the present. Jim's anecdotes range from the hair-raising to the hilarious, and his photographs bring to life Savary Island in the early days, his "Queer Collection of Aircraft" that became the third largest airline in Canada, and a bygone world of Indian villages, canneries, steamboats and floating logging camps - a rainswept, vibrant culture brought to life by one of its living legends.
