"The many facets of the brilliant historian, journalist, and essayist, Stephen Hume, come together in in this evocative book about the places and peoples of the West Coast. Both serenity and peace echo in the weathers of these island pages. A Walk with the Rainy Sisters, is Hume at his most personal, the intimacies and reflections gathered here worth all our attention. He is one of the best writers we have in this country."
- Patrick Lane
"Reading Stephen Hume is like walking the beach at low tide with a knowing and lyrical guide: what was hidden is revealed anew. Each stone turned is an exploration of place, history and possibility - in prose that's highly personal and uniquely British Columbian. He makes us love this land at the edge of the world even more."
- Mark Forsythe
(Praise from Patrick Lane)
