In 1966, Edward Hoagland made a three-month excursion into the wild country of British Columbia and encountered a way of life that was disappearing even as he chronicled it. Showcasing Hoagland’s extraordinary gifts for portraiture-his cast runs from salty prospector to trader, explorer, missionary, and indigenous guide-Notes from the Century Before is a breathtaking mix of anecdote, derring-do, and unparalleled elegy from one of the finest writers of our time.

Praise for Edward Hoagland The best essayist of my generation. Edward Hoagland is a strong, solid writer with a splendid feel for the intricacy, queerness, and stubborn pertinacity of life. He is also, so far as I know, the best essayist working in our perishing republic. America’s most intelligent and wide-ranging essayist-naturalist. Philip Roth, London Sunday Times. Edward Hoagland is a natural. His essays flow like running water, pure and clear.

By 1968, Edward Hoagland had successfully published three novels, including the award-winning Cat Man. Looking for material for his next book, he immersed himself in the British Columbia bush for seven weeks, recording his observations and interviews in a series of diaries that became the widely lauded travel book Notes from the Century Before. Early in the Season is an equally riveting account of his return journey. Early in the Season vividly evokes the vast stands of trees, the fast-flowing rivers, the rocky ridgelines of the province’s unspoiled central interior. Against this dramatic backdrop Hoagland profiles an extraordinary cast of characters from the region’s present and past: fearless, larger-than-life trader Skookum Davidson; self-proclaimed “Chinese-Indian medicine man” Luke Fowler; indomitable “Omineca River Queen” Agate Alexander; and many others. Poignant, probing, and historically rich, this book offers a window on the people and places that shaped British Columbia and a transporting read for anyone curious about life in one of the world's most majestic wildernesses.
