Harley Rustad
Big Lonely Doug

This is the story of Big Lonely Doug, a 60-metre tall Douglas fir that was saved by a logger. Author Harley Rustad reveals how this single tree is a symbol for the future of both the timber industry and the old-growth conservation movement on Vancouver Island.

Captain Reverend Bob Shepton
Addicted to Adventure

Trapped in ice off Greenland in a burning ship and losing a mast in the Falklands are just a few of Captain Reverend Bob Shepton’s adventures. Captain Bob is an ordained minister, now in his 80’s, who brings to Banff one-of-a-kind tales of his life spent sailing in the Arctic and making first ascents of previously inaccessible peaks.
