And to give you an idea of how good the book is, I started on the Friday of the Thanksgiving long weekend and was done the book by Monday at lunch. All 200 plus pages of it! I never do that with books!
I strongly suggest if you like the outdoors, cottaging, and all things Canadiana to get a copy of this book!
I went boating with my family to Desolation Sound many summers during my childhood, but I didn't know half of the information about the history of the place.
When we went boating this summer, we where chatting about many of the locations that the author talks about. It was fascinating to find remnants of an old homestead that we didn't even know about. We even found one of the huge walnut trees next to an old outhouse. It was fascinating.
Thankfully, I was too young to know much about the Lund Pub, but we really enjoy Nancy's Bakery these days.
The in-depth accounts of the psychological effects that happened to people who tried to live "off the grid" are really good too. People often have very "romantic" notions about living "off the grid" or "exiting civilization" and I think the chapters about people who did that and then slowly went "nuts" as a result is a good reality check.

I've never been to Desolation Sound, BC, despite having lived in Vancouver all my life. Grant's stories about this special area of British Columbia truly bring it to life. Read morePublished on July 26 2011 by Jill
