The aviation history of the Cariboo-Chilcotin is rich and colourful. Float planes came first, followed by wheeled planes once landing strips were created, then helicopters. Together they played a significant role in "opening up" the country for settlement, development and exploration. Aided by an array of expert bush pilots who live across the region, photographer Chris Harris and writer Sage Birchwater take you on an aerial journey of discovery where landscapes take on new meaning. The story is told visually through Harris's impeccable lens and artistic eye, capturing images fleeting and profound, translating the ordinary into the sublime. Birchwater's story-telling prowess draws on the memories and experiences of these bush pilot pioneers, uncovering stories of intrigue, romance, humour, and tragedy. Together they offer a breathtaking glimpse into the legacy of the Cariboo Chilcotin region of British Columbia. Over his career Sage has specialized in telling the stories of the people of the Cariboo Chilcotin Central Coast region. He has written or edited nine books and his work has been selected for several anthologies.
