The Cariboo becomes a character rather than just a setting for Christian Petersen’s collection of stories.
He blends tales from the past and present, drawing on history from the boom times of Barkerville to the building of the gaol in Soda Creek.
Petersen’s writing evokes the clear, crisp air and water that make the Cariboo such a special place in B.C. and how those natural elements can help influence the people who choose to call it home.
