Atlin Where Everyone Knows Your Dog's Name

Atlin Where Everyone Knows Your Dog’s Name is the story of a boy and the town that raised him. It was an innocent time, when imagination was king, and the wilderness was a playground. Surrounded by his family’s many dogs, Brad was raised without running water, TV or radio. They burned wood for heat, ate moose meat and trout, and water was delivered once a week to a barrel in the kitchen. With his buddies in tow, Brad enjoyed carefree days of swimming, fishing, hunting, and random adventures unknown to their city-dwelling counterparts of the time.

With natural story-telling ease and wit, Brad tells a story that is as much about the town that molded and raised him to be the person he is today as it is about his childhood. He tells of average life and average people who did extraordinary things. In doing so, it made them anything but average.

🙶It is an absolute must read!🙷
Terry Milos, author of North of Familiar

Atlin, British Columbia

Brad grew up in Atlin, British Columbia, an isolated, northern, gold-rush town. In the late 1960s and early 1970s, Atlin was scratching its way back from becoming a footnote in a history book, only recently escaping its ghost town status. Amid the influx of new families, it was experiencing a rebirth, a modern day rush. Atlin survived and thrived on inclusion, acceptance and volunteerism. Civic duty was learned from early childhood and performed with pride.

🙶I absolutely love this book. It's such a well-written book of life in small town Canada. The author's childhood sounds just magical and yet it took a lot to be able to survive in such a remote area with none of the modern conveniences we take for granted today. I grew up in some small towns and my parents live in a remote mountain community and I love to go visit them. I could relate to some of what the author describes in this book.🙷 ~ Kelly L, Reviewer, NetGalley Reviewer
