 About the Book 

In 1898 Vancouver, British Columbia, the flip of a coin sends one young man to the Klondike gold rush leaving his partner, Andy Forberg, to carve a living from trees growing along the rocky coastline of remote British Columbia. One hundred yearsMoreIn 1898 Vancouver, British Columbia, the flip of a coin sends one young man to the Klondike gold rush leaving his partner, Andy Forberg, to carve a living from trees growing along the rocky coastline of remote British Columbia. One hundred years later his granddaughter, driven by a need to explore her family heritage, experiences a heart-warming welcome at the farm Andy left so long ago. from Fjord to Floathouse is the saga of hardy West Coast pioneers, who lived in snug floating homes and were sustained by surrounding sea and forest. Water transportation, written communication, semi-weekly shipments of staple supplies(anything they could not shoot, catch, or pick) were continuing limitations. In short time segments, complete with letters, quotes, photographs, recipes and map, readers are drawn into a rural lifestyle that only few have experiences, or even been aware existed.
