Founder/Editor Howard White predicts that Raincoast Chronicles 17 will emerge as often called the "bad medication" factor. From the queasy feeling that pioneer medication conjures up in Margaret McKirdy's "The surgeon booklet" to Robin Ward's profile of Francis Rattenbury - British Columbia's favorite architect - whose chequered profession resulted in a vintage "Agatha Christie" homicide, to epidemiologist Douglas Hamilton's "The nice Pox," which casts a frightening point of view at the small pox epidemics that decimated BC's local peoples, this Raincoast Chronicles treads evenly the skinny line among existence and death.But 17's lighter part is simply as robust. It "rushes into historical past" the bygone days of possibilities For early life delivers, as Mark Bostwick recollects guiding hikers onto the newly-christened West Coast path in the summertime of '72. Petra Watson celebrates Victoria's ground-breaking photographer Hannah Maynard, whose photos of BC lifestyles from 1862 to 1912 became worthwhile artifacts of provincial historical past. Howard White takes us to the early days of the Sechelt state, whilst the good wood urban Kalpalin gave Pender Harbour an even bigger inhabitants than it has this day. local background and legend are recalled in Gilbert Joe's story of the final conflict among the Kwakiutl and the Sechelt, and in Dick Hammond's eerie actual tale of 2 hunters pitted opposed to "the-deer-that-is-not-a-deer." besides Lynn Ove Mortensen on August Schnarr, Jack Springs' poignant story of unrequited love on a fishboat, Paul Lawson's poem "The Rock Bandits" and Arthur Mayse's don't-try-this-at-home recipe for "Donkey Boiler Coffee," Raincoast Chronicles 17 is actually a subject to recollect.
