Description

Atlin Where Everyone Knows Your Dog’s Name is the story of growing up in an isolated, northern gold rush town. It was an innocent time, when imagination was king, and the wilderness was a playground. Surrounded by his family’s many dogs, Brad was raised without running water, TV or radio. People burned wood for heat, ate moose meat and trout, and water was delivered once a week to a barrel in the kitchen. With his buddies in tow, Brad enjoyed care free days of swimming, fishing, hunting, and random adventures unknown to their city dwelling counterparts of the time.

The author combines his own memories and experiences with the tongue-in-cheek 1970s writings for the local newspaper by Diane Solie Smith.

With natural story-telling ease and wit, Brad tells a story that is as much about the town that molded and raised him to be the person he is today as it is about his childhood. He tells of average life and average people who did extraordinary things. In doing so, it made them anything but average.
