Middle-aged Andy Bathgate clings to a precarious life in the logging town of Prince George, British Columbia. He fears the balance he currently enjoys -his relationship with a good woman, the uneasy truce with her eco-activist son, senior hockey with his friends - will come undone the moment the truth comes out: that he is not, in fact, Andy Bathgate. What he doesn't realize is that the people of his community aren't as clueless as he believes- and that honesty, decency, and fairness still have a place in the 21st century.

Written by award-winning non-fiction author Brian Fawcett, The Last of the Lumbermen weaves a story of modern small-town Canada in a voice seasoned with the wisdom and frankness of maturity.

Brian Fawcett is the author of several works of fiction, non-fiction, and poetry, including My Career with the Leafs and Cambodia: A Book for People Who Find Television Too Slow. His book Virtual Clearcut: Or, the Way Things Are in My Home Town won the Pearson Prize for non-fiction in 2004. He was formerly a columnist for The Globe and Mail, an editor at Books in Canada, and is now a founding editor and contributor to dooneyscafe.com. Fawcett was born in Prince George, BC, and currently lives in Toronto.

“Fawcett has written a gripping, funny, tender story with an unconventional narrative arc and great voice. The world he creates is detailed and vivid, and the characters linger in the mind. As the saying goes, The Last of the Lumbermen is in it to win it. Let’s hope it hoists a trophy or two.” - Quill and Quire

“As good as hockey novels get; a realistic story of the senior men’s game and the life of west coast loggers.” - The Sun-Times
