Wrong Highway: Misadventures of a Misplaced Societ
Category: History: Canada
Author: Stella T. Jenkins
Copyright/published Year: 2012 by Hancock House
In 1948, divorced mother of four Stella McCandless--much to
the horror of her straight-laced Victoria family--fell in love
with and married several-years-younger (and several inches
shorter) Bob Smith, a nomadic trapper and self-professed flaunter
of convention. Being herself of a rebellious nature and craving
release from the strictures of her traditional society lifestyle,
Stella packed up her two younger children and followed Bob from
Smithers to the Yukon and back to the Cariboo as he tried to find
his fortune and settle into family life. Bob's sudden and
untimely death in 1956 left Stella with their young son and the
challenge of coming to terms with the loss of her 'north star.'
Stella's is the story of a woman whose odyssey of independence
led to the discovery of inner strength and the courage to live
her life her own way.
