A great essayist's portrait of British Columbia in the 1960s, following Notes from the Century Before.

In 1968 Edward Hoagland embarked on his second trip to British Columbia. The following year he published the journal from his first trip as Notes from the Century Before, a classic that is still in print today. Early in the Season is the never-before-published account of the second journey, a trip that formed the basis for his fourth novel, Seven Rivers West, and was recently excerpted in the Houghton Mifflin Best American Travel Writing anthology.

An introduction by award-winning writer Stephen Hume and a new epilogue by Hoagland himself reveal why, forty years later, this historically rich window on the people and places that shaped British Columbia is still relevant today.

a bit dated and personal... that's why it has waited 50 years to be published...
