What an adventurer this woman was! It is a great treatment of the West Coast and makes me want to go with her. I wonder if her children knew how lucky they were?

This is a must read for any one living on Vancouver Island. The many discriptions of places around the discovery islands - some still there and many long gone - is unsurpassable by any other book available on the topic.
