About Trevor Green

Trevor Green was a legendary story teller, and readers of Memories of Cowichan Lake can experience the magic of his encounters with "The Woman who became a Bird", "Old Tom", "Ellen", and others. His tales of pioneer life, such as "Hewers of Wood" and "And Drawers of Water", along with his recollections of an early Greendale Christmas and his first-person account of the terrible fire at Lake Cowichan High School in the 1960s, demonstrate the superb eye for what's going on around him that make his stories impossible to put down.

Featuring many pictures from the Green family collection, Memories of Cowichan Lake is a delight for those who remember Trevor Green from the days when they themselves grew up in that community, but the book also offers a fascinating insight into the history of rural Vancouver Island.
