About this title


Sproat's classic eyewitness account of life among the Nootka (or West Coast People), published in 1868, was the first such book to be written by an educated resident of Vancouver Island's outside coast. He was not an impartial witness by any means, but by his standards, Sproat was honest. Equally interesting as the study that the author paints of the Nootka, is the self-portrait of a bewildered European that emerges in these pages. For the first time in 120 years The Nootka is again available and this time in an edition modernized and annotated for the contemporary reader by Charles Lillard.
