Davies, Gordon

Outdoor and travel writer, photographer, artist, musician, WWII veteran, and journeyman printer, Gordon Davies (1924–2009) was a friend to every river he ever met. With his wife, Pauline (1924–2007), and often with their youngest son, Rob, he explored and fished rivers from Yukon to Mexico. In the Living Rivers books, Davies showed us, in prose and photographs, how he felt about the streams of BC, his home province. Well-informed, concerned, caring, and with a wry wit, he leaves us in no doubt: he loved rivers.
