Editorial Reviews


Whether you want to get lost inanother world or you want to remember your dreams of leaving it all for thewilderness, give 'Up the Lake' a shot.  You may just find yourself onceagain dreaming of a slower paced lifestyle; who knows?  Maybe you'llfollow through after you remember it can be done..... Diane Kidman, DKM, Natural Family Living

In his first book, Up the Lake, Wayne documented the transition from Los Angeles to a rural community. In the process, he discovered many of the same things local residents found a long time ago. But he looked at things from a slightly different perspective..... Powell River Peak Newspaper

Everything you write is how I remember it! Thank you so verymuch for writing about my precious Lake, and for appreciating it in the sameway my family did for years. It makes me so happy to know that there are stillsome people out there who respect the water and the land, who don't wasteanything, and who leave nature the way it is and appreciate all it has tooffer..... former Powell River resident, Ashley McNolty (Vancouver, BC)

From the Author

When the series 'Coastal British Columbia Stories' began, I only envisioned one book, 'Up the Lake.' While researching material for this book, I followed a local resident around as he built float cabins and explored the remote backcountry. Pretty soon another book, then another, and still another followed, until (as of 2012) the series consisted of nine books, with more on the horizon. John, the fellow I chose to help me tell the story of Powell Lake, became a close friend and my guide to the Canadian wilderness. Another book by another author (Edith Iglauer, a widely traveled reporter for the 'New Yorker') achieved something similar in her best-seller, 'Fishing with John.' That was another John, of course, but I admire Edith Iglauer for what she achieved in capturing the spirit of a British Columbia fisherman. I can only hope to capture the character of Powell Lake's John nearly as well. Let the reader be the judge.
