Letter: Everything Shuswap a compelling read

I blame Jim Cooperman for my lack of sleep!

I couldn’t stop reading his new book, Everything Shuswap.

Every home in our area should have a copy, (available at the Observer office and Askew’s Uptown and Downtown). Not only is it an amazing account of our local history, geology and ecology, but it is filled with incredible photos and maps.

Plus, the proceeds all go to our school district for outdoor education projects. Congratulations, Jim.
