Desolation Sound: A History. Harbour Publishing, 2007.

Having read Heather’s previous books dealing with the west coast of Vancouver Island, I expected this book to be entertaining, informative and interesting. She met all requirements admirably, for this retired librarian has a way with words that kept me reading long after the light should have been doused.  The author didn’t have far to travel while doing the in-depth research that is her trademark, for she lives next door in Powell River. The outcome is a 260 page paperback that spent several months on the BC best-seller list, and for good reason. Bob Jones. Island Fisherman Magazine.

“Whether it was covering ferry issues, treaty negotiations, political meetings, or writing for our Vacation Guide, Heather was up to every task. Not once did she miss a deadline. I would not hesitate to hire her again, or recommend her for any position. She is a gem who understands how to write, take photos and meet deadlines.” Terry Kruger, Editor, Powell River News.  Oct. 15, 1999.
