Jack, in your busy schedule do you think you could get the laborer guy on your cabin to write a book of short stories of his like in interior Alaska?
I believe he has enough anecdotes to fill a volume and make it funny and interesting.

White17 has enough stories that several volumes of yarns could be spun. I too wish he'd take the time to write these down and put together a book; sort of a primer for real bush living. Sort of Steinbeck-esque? Perhaps something like "Of Marten and Men"?

I agree, White is a fantastic writer.

Ten or fifteen years ago he posted a story here on Tman about a passage along the coast of British Colombia. It was an outstanding story. I even printed it out and read it to my kids. I lost the original printout and some years ago I ask him to post it again. He did and I still have that copy...somewhere...I think...

The other short stories he has occasionally posted here are of equal high quality.

If he would compile them into book form I could stick it in my library know where they are at all times!


Eh...wot?
