About this product
- DescriptionIn 1981, John Grain's passion for the outdoors led him to create a consortium that purchased Glimpse Lake Lodge, a neglected fishing camp near Merritt, BC. The discovery of a tattered diary inspired him to write this book before time and age erased the events completely or exaggerated them beyond belief. It combines a brief history of the homestead that became Glimpse Lake Lodge, with the hilarious, tender and sometimes heart-breaking events that marked the group's years of ownership from 1981 to 1987. Each day was a new adventure marked by unexpected encounters with wildlife, intriguing people and even ghosts. This book weaves a stirring and remarkable journey of a young family who abandoned the urban frenzy and embraced the tranquility and serenity of a rural lifestyle. In so doing, they learned those family values and precious life lessons that will be passed on for generations.
- Author BiographyJohn Grain has been an avid outdoorsman since growing up on Saltspring Island in the 1960s. He has been a BC public school teacher since 1976 and is active with the BC Teachers Federation and the BC College of Teachers. He was also a fishing guide and taught the C.O.R.E hunting program. A few times each year John and his wife Kirsti still make the trek to Glimpse Lake to enjoy the fishing and to chuckle or shed a tear over those magical memories from so long ago.
