Vancouver Island, British Columbia

A reference in the book, "Passage to Juneau" by Jonathan Raban......he quotes John Chappell's yachtman's pilot book..."Crusing Beyond Desolation Sound," a reference to Hurst Island -- one of a string of islands off the northeast tip of Vancouver Island about a square mile in size: "One is advised against hiking to the east side of the island. Former residents have sighted a "hairy man" and strong evidence points to the existance of a Sasquatch family on the island, perhaps centered on Meeson Cove above Harlequin Bay. First Nation Indian residents of nearby Balaklava Island have had similar experiences and now refuse to go to either place."
