Starting from the premise that we learn best about place from the place where we are, Stranger Wycott's Place is at once a history, a writer's musings, and an appreciation of the lively wild. John Schreiber evokes formative myths and contemporary realities to guide the reader through this landscape. He is simultaneously an erudite travel guide, a chronicler of the region's stories and a clear–eyed observer.
In Schreiber's words the Chilcotin comes alive, a geography of carved range, grassland, bullet holes and broken–down barns, where past and present jostle against the realities of Interior lives. Stranger Wycott's Place asks: can humans learn to coexist with the wild, and even to recognize it within ourselves?
