We’re really lucky at BC West to have Jim Sirois as our friend and neighbor.
Jim grew up in the little town of Ocean Falls, BC and had a very successful career in aerospace and manufacturing product development (!). He’s spent most of the last 20 years in a log cabin on the Dean River, where he takes incredible pictures, writes great books, and really, really loves the outdoors.
Jim has published a handful of books, a couple of which are of particular interest to us at BC West.
Kimsquit Chronicles is an amazingly detailed and well-researched history of the area around the Dean River. Sorry, Kimsquit Chronicles is out of print, but we’ve got some copies at the lodge!
Grizzly Chronicles is a collection of entertaining stories and great photographs of his neighbours, the grizzly bears of the Dean and Kimsquit Rivers. We’ve got some of the pictures from Grizzly Chronicles posted around the lodge – let’s just say you won’t believe some the the shots Jim has gotten over the years!
Jim’s got a web site with more information about a couple of his books, and you can check that out here.
