0969700822 New book. Set against a background of rapid social and economic change, Voices from the Sound examines the years 1899 to 1929 on the west coast. These years saw the demise of the fur seal trade, the coming of scheduled steamships and the development of commercial whaling, logging and fishing. Zealous missionaries radically altered the lives of native people, while the upstart settlement called Tofino gradually eclipsed nearby Clayoquot as the dominant community in the area. Voices from the Sound is based on thousands of first-hand documents, written by people in the area. When Margaret Horsfield began unearthing all these obscure west coast documents in unlikely locations, she found herself nearly deafened by a cacophony of voices from Clayoquot Sound. She draws us skilfully into their world, allowing these voices be heard, revealing the high hopes, bitter losses, and cockeyed dreams that dominated the lives of many people on the west coast.
