Roderick Haig-Brown, an author best known for his classic books on fly fishing, also wrote two novels about life and work in the northwest woods. On the Highest Hill tells the story of Colin Ensley, a shy and solitary young man who is more at home in nature than he is with people. Colin's fate is ruled by two great loves, for a woman and for a place. For both, he must struggle. The story unfolds in logging camps, in bustling Vancouver, on the Canadian prairies, and in wartime Europe, but always returns to the vast forests, mountains, and wilderness valleys of Vancouver Island - where Colin's story begins and where it comes to its violent and tragic end.
