In B.C. - Yukon Sketches, Eric N. Foster explores two landscapes: the outer landscape of the small working towns of lumbering, mining, and farming as they were fifty to sixty years ago; and the inner landscape of a young man searching for a meaningful maturity for himself through working and talking with others as he meets them. In his poetry and verse, Eric paints with the brush of the artist that he also is. He notes in the tiniest detail how the Spring comes upon the land in the North. As the musician that he too is, he describes for us how the forest, farm and ocean sound as the earth warms. With his probing intellect, Eric records with amazing acumen the conversations the narrator has with himself and with the strong hard-working men and women who populated the logging camps, the mining camps, and the farms of this western Canada frontier as it was, and to a large extent, still is. You will be enthralled with every poem and story herein as the young man who, born and living in England until he moved to Vancouver Island at the age of seven, falls in love with the landscape and the people of B.C. and the Yukon. You will too. Bob Aitken, Cobble Hill, B.C. April, 2012
