VANISHED: The Michael Dunahee Story to be released November 30!

 

www.hancockhouse.com/products/vanish.htm

 

The 1991 abduction of little Michael Dunahee from a Victoria playground instigated the largest missing-child investigation in Canada up to that time and riveted attention around the world. Nearly 22 years later the case remains unsolved, but is still actively investigated.

Well-known Victoria author Valerie Green conducted extensive interviews with many people attached to this case, including Michael's family, in order to gain a broad perspective of this story. What she found was a story of strength, endurance and, ultimately, hope, as the Dunahee family turned their personal tragedy towards helping others who have experienced the abduction of a child. They maintain a staunch believe that one day they will be reunited with their son.

This book also includes appendices with child safety tips, information on what to do when a child goes missing or a missing child is seen, and a list of Child Find offices across Canada.

Fifty percent of royalty proceeds from book sales are being donated to Child Find BC.

There will be an official book launch at a Child Find BC fundraising event in Victoria on Friday, November 30 at CFB Esquimalt in the Wardroom at 1586 Equimalt Road. Tickets are available by pre-purchase only through Child Find BC, 250-382-7311. Proceeds from the ticket sales will go to Child Find BC.

New Titles & Great Reprints for Spring!

If you go out in the woods today, you're sure of a big surprise

If you go out in the woods today, you'd better go in disguise

For every sasquatch that ever there was will gather there for certain...

 

If you go out in the woods today, you'd better not go alone...take your camera!


Sasquatch in British Columbia: A Chronology of Incidents and Important Events, is an encyclopedia of the sasquatch in BC, outlining everything from fossilized footprints to current reports and scientific research. Anyone interested in this enduring mystery--and who isn't?--should have this book in their library.

 

 

 

Wrong Highway: The Misadventures of a Misplaced Society Girl is Stella Jenkins' memoir of her escape from her straight-laced society life in post World War II Victoria as she "hit the road" with her peripatetic younger husband. Stella was a pioneer of a different sort, and her story an odyssey of independence in the era before feminism took root.

 

 

 

Speaking of pioneers, Packtrains & Airplanes: Memories of Lonesome Lake is Trudy Turner's amazing story of her life in remote Lonesome Lake, BC. Born and raised on her parents' homestead, Trudy grew up strong and independent, estabishing her own farm in her early twenties and raising her own family there. Now in her eighties, Trudy's crystal clear memories take us to a time now vanished and describe a life of challenge but with true abundance.

 

 

 

True Pheasants: A Noble Quarry by James Pfarr is a tribute to these spectacular birds, and incudes color plates of rare paintings, museum specimens and identification information on all the sub species.

 

 

 

Our reprints include a beautiful redesign of perennial best-seller
