Jim Cooperman arrived in the Shuswap in 1969 as a back-to-the-land, war resister after obtaining a degree from UC Berkeley. Since then he raised a family with his wife Kathi; built log houses, including his own; operated a sawmill; taught school; and finished his career as an editor for an environmental journal. He continues to lead a local environmental group, produce music and theatre events as well as write extensively about local geography (see his blog shuswappassion.ca). His book, Everything Shuswap, is scheduled to be published this fall.
