"Dating from around the 1540s, barely two decades after the fall of the Aztecs, the mapa recently underwent extensive physical analysis, conservation and a photographic survey. Many of the resulting images accompany fifteen essays that explore the meanings and uses of the document, its complex narrative, and the social and ritual memory of an indigenous community struggling to hold its own in the turbulent atmosphere of early colonial Mexico."--BOOK JACKET.

A BC classic—over 100,000 copies in print! Joe Garner's father, Oland, was the oldest of four brothers who were run out of South Carolina in 1903 by the Ku Klux Klan. Along with his bride, Lona, Oland headed west to San Francisco, then north to Victoria, BC. He found employment with Emily Carr's father. Ten years later he helped Emily build her house in Victoria. Garner recalls a hilarious childhood night spent sleeping between the artist's two shaggy sheepdogs. In this fascinating memoir, Joe Garner takes us from the family's move to Salt Spring Island to his adventures as a hunter and trapper to his adult exploits as an entrepreneur and innovator in several of the west coast's burgeoning industries. Garner recalls encounters with a cougar, journeys by floatplane to the remote reaches of the Queen Charlotte Islands and the lakes of the Chilcotin, and a poker game in which the stakes included logging camps and aircraft.
