New book honours Sun Peaks pioneer

This new book is available all over B.C. You can find it at the Kamloops Art Gallery, Country Bug Books in Merritt, Grizzly Books in Revelstoke, and at Sun Peaks Resort, as well as most book stores in Kamloops.

Sun Peaks is opening for the season this weekend.

If you're up there, take note of how many signs you see with the name Burfield on them.

There's the Burfield chairlift, the Burfield lodge and there's Burfield drive.

Oh, and also the Burfield Heights neighbourhood.

All of them are named after the father of Marion Burfield. Her new book is all about her dad, Harry.

It's called "Flight was in His Spirit - the Life of Harry Burfield."

Marion speaks with host Shelley Joyce.
