A search and rescue volunteer looks for a missing snowboarder on Christmas Eve. Two brothers retreat to the woods to shoot a film in memory of their dead friend. A reclusive forestry worker picks up a hitchhiker on his way down Mount Seymour. A young man finds a temporary haven on the ice barge where he works.

In this collection of award-winning stories, Tyler Keevil uses the rugged landscape of Vancouver’s Burrard Inlet—where the city meets the mountains and civilization meets the wild—as a backdrop for characters struggling against the elements, each other and themselves.

Written in a lean, muscular style, these are stories awash in blood and brine, and steeped in images of freedom and confinement.
