Description

A captivating collection of Jack Knox's most memorable, heart-warming, inspiring, and off-beat human-interest stories.

Praise for Jack Knox:
"Canada needs more Knox!"--Will Ferguson
"Knox is the most underrated writer in Canada."--Les Leyne
"There are a few key secrets to a happy life in Victoria--avoiding downtown when the cruise ships are in, knowing exactly how late you can get to the ferry terminal, and reading Jack Knox."--Mark Leiren-Young

From bestselling author and beloved columnist Jack Knox comes a new collection of unforgettable true stories about the people who shape the unique culture of Vancouver Island and its surrounding areas. Full of humanity, heart, and sometimes humour, On the Rocks with Jack Knox celebrates ordinary people who have extraordinary stories to tell. From Alban Michael, the last person on Earth to speak Nuchatlaht, to Diana Deans, the Port Angeles customs inspector who caught the Millennium Bomber, to Victoria's Rudi Hoenson, who survived a Japanese labour camp and the atomic bomb at Nagasaki to become one of the happiest souls you'll ever meet, the people in this fascinating volume represent all walks of life. Elders, heroes, criminals, and oddballs are all worthy subjects in the world of Jack Knox.
