    One thought on “West by Northwest: British Columbia Short Stories”

    1. I read this book for a course on British Columbia literature It was full of very important BC authors, and some really great short stories too Noteworthy are Emily Carr s short story D Sonoqua and Sophie and Eden Robinson s Queen of the North , which both deal with native issues.
