I was looking at the stand of totems in Stanley Park and was reminded again of my native heritage. This caused me to reflect on an incident told to me by Chief Dan George.

As a young man he had just lost a finger in an accident and had to row across Burrard Inlet, then hike up a trail through trees to St. Paul’s Hospital for treatment. He remembered looking West from the hospital balcony towards the Burrard Street Bridge and seeing the sunset on nothing but more trees.

From my vantage point, I turned and looked across the harbor at a different kind of forest one of skyscrapers, towers of glass and steel. So many changes.

Today hundreds of thousands of people live here having settled from all over the world. One family who moved to this thriving metropolis was my grandparents, John and Sophia Freeman, and their eight daughters.

I dedicate this work entitled Vancouver to the Freeman family.
