ITEM SPECIFICS nº 1153:

"Three against the wilderness" is one of the most famous books about British Columbia, Eric Collier's gripping Chilcotin memoir Three Against the Wilderness is a classic homesteading account that is gradually slipping into obscurity, along with the reputation of its author, although the Meldrum Creek homesite where Collier and his family lived in isolation for 27 years was restored by the Chilliwack-based Canadian Army Engineers in 1994. The Colliers moved into the Meldrum Creek area of the BC Chilcotin in 1920’s, and during a summer forest fire he comments “The creek is dying, the trees are dying, the land everywhere is dying”. By the early
1930’s they were settled in for an adventure. Some thirty years later, with beaver re-established and water in the marches of Meldrum Creek, the situation is very much changed.
I read the book and loved it. So a sort of tribute, I paint these three beavers today.

All of them painted with the most quality watercolors by Juan Bosco.
