Books Info:

Over the Mountains free pdf "I'm no good at writing," says Rafe Mair, paraphrasing Robert Benchley, "but by the time I realised that, I was too famous to stop." He didn't begin writing until he was 50, but since that time he has won the coveted Michener Canadian Media Award, the Hutchison Award for Lifetime Contribution to BC Journalism and has been inducted into the Broadcast Hall of Fame. Now liberated from the distraction of his wildly popular radio talk show, Rafe has for the first time been able to concentrate his legendary energies exclusively on the written word - and "Over the Mountains" is the result. Rafe tackles controversial issues and his sense of humour and critical insight will produce a wide range of responses. In "Over the Mountains", you'll find out why Rafe thinks 'ecoterrorist' Paul Watson deserves the Order of Canada- how Rafe blew his one chance with Gloria Steinem- whether or not Tiger Woods is the best golfer of all time, and you'll read about the holes Rafe has found in the theory of evolution.
