Books by Garth Baker
Garth Baker didn't just write about the outdoors of northern Alberta - he lived it.
He started on the trapline trail as a 13-year-old in the depths of the Great Depression. He spent 32 years running his line on the Freeman River, a tributary of the Athabasca. Trapping came to an end when the oil companies invaded the area. Garth died on Vancouver Island in 2001.
Garth wrote two books based on his experiences in northern Alberta.
Athabasca Saga, published in 1990, is a novel based on an idea that came to Garth while he was working on a barge for a logging company in northern British Columbia.
Thirty-two Years Trapping the Swan Hills is a collection of factual and fiction short stories based on the years in the Swan Hills.
The books are $8.95 each in Canada, plus $2 for shipping.
