Books Campbell River, Gateway to the Inside Passage, by Ian


Douglas, is three books in one: it blends the city's fascinating history, contemporary life and breathtaking scenery into one volume. The informative text, by local writer Ian Douglas ,features the area’s rich First Nations culture and key pioneers along with modern-day artists, business people and community leaders. We meet Charles Thulin, the “father of Campbell River,” who came to the area in 1904 and built the town's first hotel and store; and writer, sport fisher and conservationist Roderick Haig- Brown, whose home has become a BC Heritage Site and literary landmark. We explore areas around the city including Mittlenatch Island, a seabird colony and nature reserve nicknamed the "Galapagos of the Gulf of Georgia" and majestic Strathcona Park, BC's oldest provincial park. Quadra Island resident and


author, Ian Douglas, interviewed dozens of locals to bring to life the


community of Campbell River and the surrounding islands, and award-winning photographer Boomer Jerritt skilfully illustrates the story with breathtaking photographs of the people, places and wildlife that make this part of Vancouver Island unique.
