The Journey of a West Coast Doctor's Daughter
by Lois McLean Hooks

The Journey of a West Coast Doctor's Daughter relates the life and experiences of growing up in an isolated village on the west coast of Vancouver Island. It includes stories of boat travel and incidences on the wild Pacific ocean, having supplies shipped in by freighters, accompanying a medical missionary doctor on trips to First Nation's villages, and miracles that happen in life, along with personal family stories, some humourous and some tragic. These are stories of everyday life in a most beautiful spot of the rugged west coast of Vancouver Island.
