About the Authors
Anny Scoones has written six books, Island Home being her latest. She lives in James Bay with her partner and her dog Archie, plus a multitude of cats she brought from North Saanich when she lived on her historic Glamorgan Farm. She currently teaches ESL (English) downtown and recently became a yoga instructor. She still competes at the annual Saanich Fair on her horse.
Wallace George du Temple graduated from North Saanich High School in 1959. He holds a degree from UBC and a teaching certificate from the U of T. He has had several careers; as a social worker, a teacher, and a wilderness canoe outfitter. His work as a social worker near the Yukon influenced his career as an educator. He became a champion for better understanding of the abuses suffered by First Nations concerning residential schools, housing, treaties, water and the Indian Act. He worked in First Nations communities in BC and Nunavut. Dream Catcher and Reconciliation is a book that captures a lifetime of empathy and respect for Indigenous Canadians.
