HOME STRETCH is about Louis and Carol’s life together at Lillooet Lake, a beautiful and rugged mountainous region north of Whistler and Pemberton, located in British Columbia, Canada. Before there was road access Louis made this mountainous area his home, and developed it for pioneer families who wanted to live off the grid, some of whose stories are relived within the book. This included developing state of the art services, such as setting up a sawmill, schooling in water and disposal systems, operating and maintaining machinery, and building a water turbine for electricity and telephone hookup where no service existed.
Living at Lillooet Lake is not without its challenges – over the years forest fires, snow, bears and other wildlife have competed for Louis and Carol’s attention. However, this was a small price to pay to be able to enjoy the beauty of the lake and its surroundings. A beauty that both Louis and Carol, along with their children, grandchildren and friends, have enjoyed for over 40 years. If you enjoyed reading Louis’ first book you will enjoy HOME STRETCH even more.
