From the We Wai Kai warriors of the 19th century to the loggers, gold miners, prostitutes and ranchers who followed, its people have provided the stuff of legend. Taylor draws us into the story of her island home with tales of people like WeKai, the ancestor of the We Wai Kai First Nation, Reginald Heber Pidcock, the crusty potlatch-busting Indian Agent and Helen Bull, the notorious mistress of the Heriot Bay Hotel, who survived a point blank pistol shot." .
