Tales told of west coast pioneers

April 27, 2016 2:01 P.M.

North Kamloops Library hosts an evening with Eleanor Hancock, author of Salt Chuck Stories, on Thursday, April 28, at 7 p.m.

Hancock, who grew up in Zeballos, will present a slide-show and talk about people who pioneered the once rugged and remote west coast of Vancouver Island, including a Swiss prospector/trapper, counterfeiters, a woman of the 1938 Zeballos gold rush and the Nuu-Chah-Nulth First Nation at Friendly Cove. She published Salt Chuck Stories 10 years ago, also covering the rural communities of Kyuquot and Nootka Sound in a historical retrospective based on interviews and first-hand accounts.

This event is free but seating is limited. To register, contact the library at 250.554.1124 or
