Review of Front Lines: Portraits of Caregivers in Northern British Columbia

I started coming to northern BC to work in the early 1960s and have always felt like a man stumbling on a well kept secret. This region is ideal for anyone who appreciates the values of wilderness but it also contains a remarkable array of distinct communities. There are challenges here but in doses small enough to savour.

The essays and photographs in this book provide insight into the experiences of individuals who have found their way to this “secret” place. These people are part of a network of health care providers helping build healthier northern communities while living interesting and rewarding lives themselves. It is part of my ongoing good fortune to count myself among them.
