Toads and Nettles: Memories of the North West Coast
When a young teacher accepts a one-room posting to the isolated northwest coast in the early 1980's, she has little idea of the adventures and challenges facing not only her, but her students, husband, and young daughter.
Join the author in getting to know Blubber Bay, an isolated community of loggers, fishermen, and reclusive back-to-the-landers. This is a world where winter storms cut off mail service, travel, and even telephone access to the outside world. Heat, electricity, and running water become luxuries that can never be taken for granted, while bears and cougars are constant neighbors.
Full of humor, compassion, and insight, Toads and Nettles tells the story of a way of life that few people will ever experience at first hand.
