Here’s the fifth instalment of my Home Movies from Desolation Sound, BC, where my book is set. In this one I talk about the Sound’s first-ever Caucasian resident, “Scarface” Mike, an American roughneck seeking escape after a near-death experience in a brutal bar fight in Montana. Mike’s whole story is in the book, but in this video I find the spot where he had his homestead.
And uh yeah… um… apparently it was No Shirt O’Clock when this was one was filmed. Sorry about that! It was about 35 degrees in mid-August when we shot this segment!
