Growing up in a floating logging camp on the BC coast.
This special issure of Raincoast Chronicles is devoted to the memoirs of Florence Tickner, a longtime resident of the BC coast. Her father Ed Kimball arrived on the steamer Comox with his family when he was five years old, and Florence grew up in a floating logging camp. She remembers the green, untouched land, the abundant fish and wildlife, the mixture of exhiliration and watchfulness that went with living an isolated life in the bush. Her story is beautifully exocative of the coast in the 1930s, and her anecdotes are so vivid, so richly detailed, you can smell the salt chuck and camp coffee as you read.
