Praise for Downriver Drift

"Tim Bowling is one of the few BC writers who understand they inhabit an area of almost mythic beauty and history. And it is Bowling's power as a poet - he's published three collections - that comes into play in Downriver Drift, his first novel. . . . If you love the Fraser, if you are curious to know about the lives of local fishermen, you could hardly do better than read this book.
-Bruce Serafin, Vancouver Sun



"I was a bit apprehensive about reading [Tim Bowling's] first novel, Downriver Drift, after having enjoyed his poetry so much. I was not disappointed. Living in a British Columbia fishing community for 14 years, I found this book enlightening and engaging. . . . This is a truly British Columbian novel, not to be missed."
