The founding director of Canadian Studies at Wilfrid Laurier University, a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society, and the author of numerous historical works, including Fortune's River: The Collision of Empires in Northwest America and Simon Fraser, Barry Gough visits from his Victoria home with his newest, Juan de Fuca's Strait: Voyages in the Waterway of Forgotten Dreams (Harbour Publishing). Rooted in history and biography, this tells the story of sixteenth-century explorer Juan de Fuca, and how he made his improbable way, a time rife with rivalry both amongst countrymen and the British. Stories of others such as James Cook, Francis Drake, Francis Quimper, George Vancouver, Juan Francisco de la Bodega y Quadra, among many others, make for fast-moving, very engaging reading.
