Stories that stalk the borderlands between people, eras and geographies - half the tales roam today's BC Interior valleys, and half range from the US Civil War, to 1930s Europe and Toronto, to contemporary Vancouver.

Boundary Country is a hitchhiker's guide to the quirks and foibles of those who live in British Columbia's distinctive Kootenay mountain region. The stories capture those precise moments where history becomes memory, desire transforms into belief, and where some locale or condition alters and we name it a boundary. Deploying a heady mix of settlers' descendants from the US Civil War and 1930s Europe to contemporary resource industry employees, back-to-thelanders, and the new wave of transplanted urban professionals, Wayman's first person narratives capture those voices in near perfect pitch - their personalities echoing their geography, their substance steeped in authenticity and their collective truth reminding us that the only true wilderness that remains is within ourselves.
