Raincoast Chronicles 23
Monday May 25th @ 7pm
Book Warehouse Main St.
When the first edition of Raincoast Chronicles was produced
by a couple of novice publishers in the unlikely location of Pender Harbour in 1972, it boldly
announced that it was going “to put BC character on the record.” Printed in sepia ink and decorated
with the rococo flourishes characteristic of that extravagant era, the unclassifiable
journal-cum-serial-book about life on the BC coast struck a nerve and in time became something very
close to what it set out to be—a touchstone of British Columbia identity. Soon the term “Raincoast,”
which had been coined by the editors, was appearing on boats, puppet theatres, interior decorating
firms and at least one other publishing enterprise.
Chronicles also created another publishing enterprise—Harbour Publishing. Many of the
stories that started out as articles in the Chronicles grew into books and so the White family was
more or less forced to get into book publishing to deal with them. That undertaking went on to
publish some six hundred books (and counting!) about every possible aspect of BC and, in 2014,
celebrated its fortieth anniversary in the biz. To honour that occasion this special double issue
of Raincoast Chronicles takes a tour down memory lane, selecting a trove of the
most outstanding stories in all those Harbour books and republishing them in one volume.
Here are some of Canada’s most exciting and iconic writers—Al
Purdy, Anne Cameron, Edith Iglauer, Patrick Lane and Grant Lawrence, to start a long list. Here also
are stories of disasters at sea, scarcely believable bush plane feats, eerie events at coastal ghost
towns and a First Nations elder who has seen so many sasquatches he finds them sort of boring. Full
of great drawings and photos, this jumbo anniversary edition of Raincoast
Chronicles is a feast of great Pacific Northwest storytelling.
