Today, the town of Cumberland, British Columbia, is filled with a diverse artistic collection of people enjoying small town quaint lifestyles, but in the 19th. century it was bustling with loggers and coal miners. There were separate Chinese, Japanese, and Black communities, and life was not so quaint. Beer parlours were overflowing and bar fights were not uncommon.
My book is a collection of stories, some real, some fiction, all filled with nostalgia of recent (1960's), old days: The Cumberland Tales.
