Mayne Queen: The Passing of a Ferry by John Wiznuk
This book is a history of one of the first ships in the fleet of the British Columbia Ferries system. It is a memoir of the ship, her role in serving the Southern Gulf Islands (SGI) and other parts of coastal B.C., and a description of the her relationship with the people of the SGI and elsewhere who rode her over the decades. It celebrates her retirement from regular service, and the 62nd year of the B.C. Ferries service, in 2022. Author John Wiznuk has a keen interest in BC maritime history, has lived in the SGI for decades, and has ridden his beloved Mayne Queen countless times in the daily carrying out of tasks both mundane and sublime.
