Vancouver Island: Sketches And Trip Notes: 10/29/19
Vancouver Island: Sketches And Trip Notes by Albert Ranger is a collection of pen and ink sketches that serve as a snapshot of Vancouver Island in the mid 1990s.
I happened to hear about this book via C John Kerry's review. As we've visited the island thrice and are planning to do so again in 2020, I wanted to read it.
The illustrations are lovely. They capture the island's beauty and they give a great sense of what life was like when Ranger was creating the art.
Of course with twenty-eight years between publication and me reading it, I'm sure the touristy bits of the book are no longer completely accurate. Before our trip next summer, I plan to go through the pages and do internet searches to see what's still there or what might have replaced it.
