Voices from the Past (2nd edition) has been completely rewritten. It is twice as long as the original (516 pages), with more stories, people, and photos. The book also includes three new chapters: Whaling and Sailing; Away to War; and Those Who Went Away. I've written detailed profiles of local individuals, such as photographer J.D. Ratter, haaf skipper Charles Ratter, and school teacher Mr. Bremner, and have included more women, their challenges and successes. Listen to the voices of ordinary crofters, fishermen, knitters, and merchant seamen in their struggle to survive along the edge of the sea.

I live on the west coast of Canada. If you have any suggestions on how I can share the book (whether in person or afar), please feel free to PM me. I'm happy to attend events, or conduct online presentations and interviews.
