About The Last Voyage of the Loch Ryan
Evicted from his Tofino pyramid for the last time, writer Andrew Struthers has the solution: buy an old fishing boat going cheap via the federal governments Mifflin Plan. He takes up residence onboard with his nineyearold daughter Pasheabel, and his perennial housing problems are solved. Or are they?
The Last Voyage of the Loch Ryan picks up where the authors prizewinning The Green Shadow left off, offering a tragicomic account of smalltown life in British Columbia and of how its residents are affected by the decline of the West Coast fishing fleet. Packed to the gunwales with fascinating West Coast ship lore, hilarious and affectionate account of the authors neighbours, it boasts at least one good laugh per page.
