July 22 - Choyces (Sointula)
Still on the road, and yet apparently not without room in the backpack. After a very pleasant day on Malcolm Island, including a visit to the lighthouse at Pulteney Point, I picked up a couple of books at Choyces in bustling downtown Sointula:
- Betty Lowman Carey, Bijaboji: North to Alaska by Oar ($24.95, the memoir of how the then-23-year-old Carey in 1937 paddled solo a 13-foot dugout canoe from Anacortes, Washington, to Ketchikan, Alaska)
- Judith Williams, Dynamite Stories ($16, another in the Transmontanus series edited by Terry Glavin).
