Eric Collier's riveting recollections about the years that he, his wife, Lillian, and son Veasy spent homesteading in the isolated Chilcotin wilderness made for an international bestseller and one of the most famous books ever written about British Columbia.
Early in the 1930s Collier moved his wife and baby son to Meldrum Creek, where the couple built their own log house and learned to live off the land. Collier's timeless tales about roughing it in the bush and the resourcefulness inspired by this lifestyle's challenges are engaging and illuminating - a showcase for Lillian's firm belief that "one can do most anything if they've just the will to try."
