Stock Description

This is Irene Stangoe's third collection of historical stories and great yarns about the people and events that shaped the Cariboo-Chilcotin. Read about: Farwell Canyon's pioneer families and ranches; Chief Anahim, who left the misty Bella Coola Valley for the high Chilcotin country many moons ago; the Lord of 100 Mile House, who moved from a grand mansion in England to a bug-infested stopping house in the Cariboo; the Hub of the Cariboo, tracing 140 years of Williams Lake history, from tiny settlement to modern city; the Great Bank Robbery, and a bank manager's nightmare ride with a gunman wanted for murder; Homer, the basset hound who played the part of a French poodle in a 1920s musical; and other events that could happen only in the Cariboo.
