Overview

This richly illustrated travel book recounts two voyages that the author made along British Columbia's fabled Inside Passage; the first to Wales Island Cannery in the spring of 1947 on the Union Steamship Cardena, and the second in the fall of 2010 on the BC Ferry Northern Adventure. The book recreates both voyages in real time and compares and contrasts them. Reconstruction of the 1947 voyage is based on the Cardena's original pilot-house log books, found in the Provincial Archives permanent collection. Board the legendary Cardena now for a nostalgic, 60-hour journey in time as the ship travels up the rugged BC coast from Vancouver to the Nass River salmon cannery.
