West by Northwest is a classic collection of British Columbia stories, beginning with Bill Reid and Robert Bringhurst's ribald creation myth "The Raven and the First Men" and closing with Edith Robinson's brilliant depiction of a Native girl's struggle for survival in "Queen of the North." In between, the stellar stories from writers such as Malcolm Lowry, Wayson Choy, Emily Carr, George Bowering, and Shani Mootoo range across geography, peoples, and writing styles. Here are stories from the sea and the islands, from coastal cities and interior ranchlands, from mountains, valleys, and northern rivers. Here, too, are tales of diverse communities: family life in Chinatown, a Russian Doukhobor wedding, poverty in a mill town, and racism in Vancouver at the turn of the century and today. Each story reflects the landscape and rich culture of British Columbia, and strengthens the link between history, place, and our collective imagination.
