Pacific Rim Park

Pacific Rim Park

 Description:  Howard McDirmand arrived on the west coast of Vancouver Island in 1955, fresh out of medical school, as the new doctor for Tofino, Ucluelet, and the surrounding area, including numerous First Nations villages in Clayoquot Sound. He fell in love with the area, eventually became the MLA, and worked to preserve Long Beach, the jewel of Pacific Rim National Park. In this memoir he tells of his medical experiences, remote from a big city hospital, describes the fun and dangers of life on the Pacific Ocean, and remembers politics in British Columbia under W.A.C Bennett and the Socreds.
