About the Book
Getting three trucks and two horses stuck in the mud on “a good road” into BC’s wild, remote interior was just the start of Bruce Watt’s Chilcotin adventures—and it was his honeymoon, too. The wildlife, landscape and quirky, down-to-earth people captivated Bruce, and despite the hard work and challenging conditions, the Watts put down roots, raising a family, alongside herds of cattle and horses.
A consummate storyteller, Bruce tells it like it was—and perhaps still is for many people calling this place home. These yarns capture the adventure and humour of running a ranch—from roping cougars to close calls on cliff edges and other “typical” accidents. His stories of chasing horses, navigating the backcountry and getting five kids off to school have a charm all their own.
