Douglas Coupland’s Carmanah Valley

Douglas Coupland, author of seven novels, including the best selling Generation X, writes about Carmanah Valley—his personal place of a lifetime—in TRAVELER’s April issue. The British Columbia oasis is “a delirious green maw of ancient spruces, cedars, and firs, dripping with water and life. . . .that can make you feel more alive then you’ve ever felt,” says Coupland. Here, we invite you to listen to Coupland’s tale. (To hear Coupland, you’ll need the free RealPlayer plug-in.)
