About the Book

Voyagers of the Chilcotin by Carolyn Foltz is her thrilling memoir of how she and her city-bred husband made a life among the grizzlies, moose and lumberjacks.

What would it be like to live in the wilderness? Carolyn Foltz grew up in California wondering that very thing. When she met and married the love of her life, a man born and raised in the Bay area of San Francisco, she quickly convinced him to leave behind their comfortable lifestyle on the West Coast and embark on what would become the adventure of their lives. But both soon found that stepping into Bella Coola, British Columbia was like going back in time a hundred years!

Told in warm, engaging prose, Foltz paints an indelible picture of a life far from the complexities of the modern world. Besides dealing with wild animals, Foltz and her husband had to learn to live without running water and electricity. They used a hand-ringer phone which had a party line with 24 other people. But what Foltz learned was far greater than just how to survive in an isolated community. She discovered that valuable lessons could be learned from a simpler lifestyle and that following your heart could lead to unimagined riches. This is a tale so high-spirited that excerpts ran in Canada’s Coast Mountain News to great acclaim. Unforgettable, funny, and gorgeously written, Voyagers of the Chilcotin is a Valentine to the great outdoors and to the pioneer spirit.
