Ralph Edwards of Lonesome Lake

Book - 1979
Rate this:
A trilogy of stories by the Edwards family about their fascinating life in the Bella Coola area. Often called "The Crusoe of Lonesome Lake," because of a best-selling book written by the American journalist Leland Stowe, Edwards has gone on to live at least one more life and reveals himself to be a pioneer of a breed that no longer exists. Best known for his almost single-handed rescue of the trumpeter swans from extinction in North America, Edwards now related in his own words other aspects of his long, varied life, including experience with his missionary parents in India, as a telegraph operator under fire in World War I and his eventual return to Lonesome Lake.
