About the Author

Frank White (1914-2015) started writing the story of his life as a pioneer BC truck driver in 1974 when he was only sixty. His boisterous yarn in Raincoast Chronicles 3 about wrangling tiny trucks overloaded with huge logs down steep mountains with no brakes won the Canadian Media Club award for Best Magazine Feature and was reprinted so many times everyone urged him to write more. He started in his spare time but kept having so many new adventures he didn't finish until his hundredth year under heaven (which he didn't believe in). In the end he had written enough for two books--Milk Spills and One-Log Loads: Memories of a Pioneer Truck Driver (Harbour, 2013), and a sequel, That Went By Fast: My First Hundred Years (Harbour, 2014). The former truck driver, logger, gas station operator, excavationist, waterworks technician and homespun philosopher lived to see 101 years. He shared a home in Garden Bay, BC, with his wife, author Edith Iglauer.
