About this title


Nootka Sound on the West Coast of Vancouver Island was the site where the first European, Captain James Cook, landed and the exploration of the island began, hence the title Beyond Nootka. Beyond Nootka is the first comprehensive history of the mountain regions of Vancouver Island. It recounts the tales of the early explorers, prospectors, surveyors and mountaineers as they pushed into ever more remote regions of Vancouver Island. Research and interviews with pioneers and their descendants give this a unique perspective and a wealth of information which will appeal to a wide audience, from climbers to history buffs. Featuring historical photos and maps as well as colour photos of modern day climbers on their significant routes. Beyond Nootka focuses on the major mountains of the Golden Hinde, Elkhorn, Big Interior Mountain, Rugged Mountain, Mt. Arrowsmith and Mt. Colonel Foster. Read about first ascents and tales of local climbers such as Mike Walsh, Joe Bajan, Geoffrey Capes and Sandy Briggs.

From the Author:

I was born in Australia and moved to New Zealand at an early age where my passion for mountaineering began. Before arriving in Canada, I climbed and travelled extensively in New Zealand, South America, Asia, Europe and North Africa, and worked for the United States Antarctic Research Program at McMurdo Sound. I now live in Courtenay on Vancouver Island and work as a mountaineering instructor. This book came about after wanting to know more about the early explorers of the area and the climbing history to help put my own experience into perspective. As I became more familiar with the mountains through my own journeys, I noticed discrepancies with what I had read about the area and decided to seek out the truth for myself. Eventually I obtained enough information to, as a natural consequence, put a book together. I don't consider myself a writer, I'm a researcher who has compiled the information presented into a form that is more succinct and more readable. I believe that the colourful past of the early pioneers must not be forgotten but help to bring a better understanding and respect to the wild spaces on Vancouver Island.
