Riassunto: Towboats have been a part of British Columbia's history since 1836, when the Hudson's Bay Company's ungainly sidewheeler S.S. Beaver made the first powered tow up the coast. Over the years, tugs and their crews have towed just about everything, including food, machinery, rocks, paper, oil, salt, lumber, oil rigs, deep-sea ships, cars and houses. The humble but admirable tug has kept BC's marine economy vital and industrious.

From the Wheelhouse captures the ins and outs of working in this often overlooked but important industry: relentless tides, wild weather, breakaway barges, the boredom, the practical jokes, superstitions, camaraderie and the agony of a failed rescue attempt.

Author and historian Doreen Armitage interviewed 16 old-time tugboat captains, engineers and deckhands to assemble this intimate and often hair-raising account of life aboard BC tugs. Tugs are called to emergencies on the water, working with the Coast Guard and fireboats to save lives and retrieve damaged vessels. Storms, fog, riptides and whirlpools, bridges, even other boats operated by inexperienced or careless hands can put a tug and its crew in jeopardy.

Beautifully illustrated with archival photos and images from the personal collections of the skippers who appear within its pages, From the Wheelhouse is both a lively, personal look at the history of towboating in BC and an engaging portrait of the famous coastal characters and vessels that have shaped this region's maritime history.

L'autore: Doreen Armitage has lived in the Vancouver/Howe Sound area for 35 years and has spent a great deal of time boating on BC's waterways. Her articles have been published in a variety of magazines including Canadian Geographic, Outdoors Canada, Canadian Heritage and Canadian Living. Her books include Around the Sound: A History of Howe Sound-Whistler and Burrard Inlet: A History which was shortlisted for the 2002 City of Vancouver Book Award.

Descrizione libro Harbour Publishing Co.,, Madeira Park, BC, 2003. Hard Cover/Excellent. Condizione libro: As New/Fine Condition. Condizione sovraccoperta: Excellent/Illustrated. 1st Edition Hardcover, 9" x 11". This is a Very Fine Copy -- in fine condition--never read--from an estate of a tugboat captain. The book is a collection of photos and narrative about the British Columbia tugboat industry and its history. The dustjacket has a coloured photo of one of the Vancouver Tug Co.'s tugboats, "La Fille" All Vancouver tugs had names of French origin. We spent some time working on the same Company's "La Verne" and some photos of her are now in Vancouver's Maritime Museum. There were many fine captains--our favourite was Capt. William Rumley (died, 1962)-- but there were many others whose stories and yarns have contributed to Armitage's lovely book. A great addition to any ship lover's library and to the collection of anybody interested in British Columbia's maritime history. Codice libro della libreria 002626
