Voices From the Sound:

Salal Books, 2008
ISBN: 978-0969700821

Filled with personal stories and a vivid sense of time and place, Voices from the Sound brings alive the history of the west coast of Vancouver Island. Nominated for the Roderick Haig Brown Book Prize in 2009, this book relates the early 20th century history of this coast through a lively exploration of the letters and diaries of people who lived there.

This is Margaret Horsfield’s second book about this area. Previously, in the award-winning Cougar Annie’s Garden, she told the story of a remote bush garden in the northern reaches of Clayoquot Sound.

384 pages, hardcover, fully indexed, contains maps, illustrations and over 100 previously unpublished photographs
