Ginger: the life and death of Albert Goodwin
One of British Columbia's most colourful figures was Albert "Ginger" Goodwin, a slight young English immigrant who arrived on Vancouver Island in 1910 to join hundreds of others slaving in the hellholes of the Cumberland mines. What he saw there made him one of the most effective labour leaders the province has ever seen, and led to an untimely and controversial end. Susan Mayse combines the skills of novelist (Merlin's Web) and historian in this gripping biography of one of BC's most controversial labour figures, a hero among Vancouver Island miners and a dangerous subversive in the eyes of the authorities.
