All the Bears Sing
Harold Macy's story collection highlights the particular magic of the West Coast, reﬂecting on how we both shape—and are shaped by—the land we inhabit.
Whether he's chronicling fallen monarch butterflies sprawled on a steep slope up-coast, the brassy orchestra of trumpeter swans, or the ecstasy of a smokejumper's fall from the sky, Harold Macy contemplates the beauty of all that British Columbia has to offer with graceful lyricism and appreciation for the natural world.
It is the human ties to the land that shine in Macy's stories: everyday fishermen and loggers, gardeners and wildland firefighters, rock blasters and island homesteaders. From the rich bounty of the glacial loam to the wondrous stands of Sitka spruce, BC's natural landscape is as much a character in Macy's tales as any person. (From Harbour Publishing)
