Marianne Van Osch

Marianne Van Osch is a Cariboo-based author and former teacher. Her work explores the experience of pioneers who grew up on remote homesteads when survival was a daily challenge, when neighbours were few and far between, and when mail service a full day’s walk from home. Van Osch also contributes stories of local and historical interest to the 100 Mile Free Press and various magazines; visits elementary schools for interactive historical presentations; and presents short story and book readings.
