Ralph Edwards of Lonesome Lake: the complete biography of the Crusoe of Lonesome Lake as told to Ed Gould
A trilogy of stories by the Edwards family about their fascinating life
in the Bella Coola area.Often called "The Crusoe of Lonesome Lake,"
because of a best-selling book written by the American journalist Leland
Stowe, Edwards has gone on to live at least one more life and reveals
himself to be a pioneer of a breed that no longer exists. Best known for
his almost single-handed rescue of the trumpeter swans from extinction
in North America, Edwards now related in his own words other aspects of
his long, varied life, including experience with his missionary parents
in India, as a telegraph operator under fire in World War I and his
eventual return to Lonesome Lake.
