1550565907 Signed and dated by author upon dedication page. 150 pages. Bibliography. Black and white reproductions of photos. Map endpapers. "An entertaining look at one man's extraordinary life. Yet with its descriptions of pioneer life and the events that helped mold the author's character, it accomplishes much more than the average autobiography. In fact, though perhaps as much by accident as design, it also affords readers a rare glimpse into the social, cultural, and economic development of the Ootsa Lake [B.C.] area - and for this reason, if no other, should be read." - Foreword. "Blackwell was a member of the First Special Service Force aka 'The Devil's Brigade' and saw action in the Aleutians, Italy, and France. Upon his return to Ootsa Lake he worked as a logger, farmer, guide-outfitter and placer miner until retirement." - back board. Clean, bright and unmarked with light wear. An attractive copy.
