Some brief overview of this book

The big flood tide that accompanies the full moon is a pivotal event for those who make a living from the sea. Salmon returning to their natal rivers and streams always come in on the full moon tide, so this is the best time for fishing. And since the full moon ebb tide retreats farther than usual, it's also the best time to gather shellfish.

Bill Proctor has lived and wor The big flood tide that accompanies the full moon is a pivotal event for those who make a living from the sea. Salmon returning to their natal rivers and streams always come in on the full moon tide, so this is the best time for fishing. And since the full moon ebb tide retreats farther than usual, it's also the best time to gather shellfish.

Bill Proctor has lived and worked by the full moon flood tides for all his life. A natural storyteller, he points the way to hidden waterfalls and abandoned Native village sites, knows the best coves for shelter in a sou'easter and shares the compelling and often funny stories of the Natives and settlers who loved this place. People like Fritz Salem, who made the best moonshine on the coast; Joe Jack, who knew the secrets of fishing for spring salmon in winter; and Dad McKay, who lived on eggs and bannock in a hollow cedar stump.

Some of Proctor's stories will raise goosebumps around a campfire-like the sad fate of the "Maid of Orleans", a former slave ship, or strange encounters with a giant sleeper shark and the ghost of Kingcome Inlet. "Full Moon, Flood Tide" is no conventional cruising guide, but an indispensable companion for travellers around northern Vancouver Island, Fife Sound, Wells Passage, Blackfish Sound and Tribune Channel. Maps illustrate the places Proctor describes, in an order suitable for visiting by boat.

Brimming with coastal lore and sprinkled liberally with Yvonne Maximchuk's line drawings, this fascinating volume pays tribute to pioneers who wrested a livelihood from forest and sea even as it makes a passionate plea to preserve the wilderness.
