“I was touched when I sensed the author’s profound reverence for trees; especially when I read his descriptions of the ‘sobbing trees’ as they were axed down. This novel has the ring of an epic ‘Lord of the Rings’ journey -this is one journey that I’ll always remember!”
Stephanie Bridgeman/It’s A Funny Kind Of Thing That Happened

“After being stranded twenty kilometers from the nearest road at the tip of Rose Spit, Haida Gwaii, and having to push his spanking new SUV a few kilometers along the beach before the tide came in and we ran out of booze, my first reaction on being asked to write a back cover blurb was, “over my dead body.” Some people will do anything to get an endorsement.”
