Stranger Wycott's Place describes John Schreiber's explorations of the Chilcotin on foot, horseback and by 4-wheel drive. A land of "mountains and old trails, coyotes and bighorn sheep, aboriginal folks, homesteaders, ranches and history," the Chilcotin begins north of Lillooet and lies between the Fraser River and the mighty Coast Mountain Range in the West.
Starting from the premise that we learn best about place from the place where we are, Stranger Wycott's Place is at once a history, a writer's musings, and an appreciation of the lively wild. John Schreiber evokes formative myths and contemporary realities to guide the reader through this landscape. He is simultaneously an erudite travel guide, a chronicler of the region's stories and a clear-eyed observer.
In Schreiber's words the Chilcotin comes alive, a geography of carved range, grassland, bullet holes and broken-down barns, where past and present jostle against the realities of Interior lives. Stranger Wycott's Place asks: can humans learn to coexist with the wild, and even to recognize it within ourselves?
