Writing in the Rain
Winner of the 1991 Stephen Leacock Award for Humour.
Book DescriptionRaincoast Chronicles, Spilsbury's Coast, The Accidental Airline, A Hard Man to Beat, The Men There Were Then. . . and now another one to top off the list. Writing in the Rain features the same fascination with British Columbia and the same ability to bring its stories to life that have brought Howard White numerous awards and accolades, including the Canadian Media Club Award for best feature and the Canadian Historical Association Award for Regional History.
Here, among others, are stories about the magic of the tides; about Minstrel Island, one-time logging hub turned ghost village; the perils of roaring down the Sunshine Coast Highway in a decrepit Volvo, and of navigating the same highway in a dumptruck full of fish guts, all told with Howard White's wit, intelligence and insight.
