Snowshoes & Spotted Dick : Letters from a Wilderness Dweller, Czajkowski, Chris
5 Czajkowski, Chris Snowshoes & Spotted Dick : Letters from a Wilderness Dweller
1550172794 / 9781550172799 paperback inscribed to prev owner
Chris Czajkowski chose to build her life and small ecotourism business on the shore of a high-altitude lake near the southern tip of Tweedsmuir Provincial Park in British Columbia. It is a formidable landscape of lake-dotted alpine plateaus abutting the glacier-swathed backbone of the central Coast Range. Snowshoes and Spotted Dick describes Czajkowski’s experiences as she builds her fourth cabin in the wilderness with hand tools, two chainsaws, an Alaskan Mill and some helpful friends. One of her helpers is Nick Berwian, a quiet but literary young German who corresponds with Czajkowski long after his return home. In these fascinating letters to Berwian, Czajkowski details her often solitary life—how she breaks trails by snowshoe with her two pack dogs, encounters grizzly bears, builds a custom stone oven and learns how to use it to bake bread and serves the enigmatic spotted dick to her visitors. The letters also chronicle Czajkowski’s challenges and triumphs as she tries to finish her cabin. Food and building supplies must be flown in and Czajkowski must hike more than 30 kilometres to the nearest road to lead guiding trips and to attend craft fairs and book promotions to supplement her income. Lyrically written, Snowshoes and Spotted Dick is a spellbinding and uplifting story that provides a close look at a way of life that most of us only dream about, one that cleaves to nature with beauty, resilience and independence.

Images of Internment, Shimizu, Dr Henry
18 Shimizu, Dr Henry Images of Internment
9871896627168 softcover good 
In 1999, 12 friends met for dinner at my sister Grace Sakamoto’s home in Toronto. After dinner we had a frank discussion about our experiences in the New Denver Internment Camp, during 1942-1946.The consensus was a bitter/sweet episode in our lives , but with a major influence on our future career and live style. Following this meeting, I painted 27 oil paintings about my impressions of the life style of teenagers in the Internment Camp in New Denver , 1942-1946. The paintings were completed in 2002. An Opening exhibit of the paintings with explanatory panels was held at the Edmonton Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre on March 23, 2002 – exactly 60 years from the day we left Prince Rupert to begin our internment. In the summer of 2008, this book was created, using the paintings with stories and to complete the story, a prologue and an epilogue.
