Those Lake People
Stories of Cowichan LakeeBook - 1995
Twenty-six miles of fresh water teeming with fish and surrounded by old-growth forest: this was Cowichan Lake at the end of the nineteenth century. Home to trappers, hunters and a handful of remittance men, the lake was also the favorite holiday destination for dukes and duchesses, Hollywood actresses and New York tycoons. Soon the giant trees began to fall to the crosscut saws of immigrant loggers from Finland, Norway, Sweden, India, Japan and China.
