In 1911, Pauline Johnson published Legends of Vancouver, a collection of native stories she learned from a tribal chieftain. One of these stories appears here in a new edition. The Lost Island tells of a long-ago time when what is now Vancouver belonged to the Sqamish people. In poetic prose, Johnson retells the story of a native healer whose visit to a mysterious island ends in a tragic loss, a striking symbol of the arrival of white civilization. Acclaimed artist Atanas's shimmering illustrations evoke a world long vanished.
