Product Description
The year is 1957, and Bobby lives on the Tsartlip First Nation reserve on Vancouver Island where his family has lived for generations and generations. He loves his weekend job at the nearby marina. He loves to play marbles with his friends. And he loves being able to give half his weekly earnings to his mother to eke out the grocery money, but he longs to enter the up-coming fishing derby. With the help of his uncle and Dan from the marina, his wish just might come true.

Sylvia Olsen has many sources of inspiration for her writing. Her mother and mother-in-law have more than 200 grandchildren and great grandchildren between them! Like Bobby, she lives in Tsartlip First Nation, where she has lived for almost thirty years. She works as a First Nations community development consultant. Catching Spring is based on a real experience of her children's father. Sylvia is the author of two other novels for children and teens, No Time to Say Goodbye and The Girl With a Baby, both published by Sono Nis Press.
