It Was Quite a Performance : The Memoirs of Ron Dalziel by Ron Dalziel Ron Dalziel came of age in a period when it was believed that any man in British Columbia could be successful - if he'd just work hard, and take a few chances. Like others of his generation, his confidence in the future of B.C. was subsequently rewarded. For nearly a half century, he fished and logged across central Vancouver Island, and up and down the Georgia Strait. This is the story of the years from the 1940's to the 1980's, and of the successes and failures of one man who embodied the spirit of the period... Presents with good humour an array of interesting West Coast characters and incidents. Moreover, his memoirs reflect throughout the wisdom one gains only through experience. Includes 15 page photograph section. Dalziel was born in Victoria in 1929 and raised upon Denman and Hornby Islands. An excellent and enjoyable reference to past days of rural Vancouver Island life and industry.
