This is an epic love story in a period when Vancouver Island was not part of British Columbia, not part of Canada and not part of the USA, though that was an option. The hardy residents fell under the administration of the Hudson's Bay Company. This is a rivalry between two `sea dogs' played out on the sealing grounds of the Pacific North West.
