0888260407 111 pages including black and white photographic plates. Anyox has been nothing for approximately 70 years but suddenly it lives again in the warm, loving memories of a writer who was a boy in the northern British Columbia town where the largest copper smelter in the British empire was located. A human story of 3,000 people who found a strange happiness in a town cut off from the world by mountain and sea, drenched with coastal rains, choked with sulphurous smelter gas, bereft of grass or flowers and buried each winter in snow. Book clean, bright and unmarked with light wear. Average wear to dust jacket. A quality copy.
