BUMP, BUMP—SLAP, river sockeye salmon are pulled onto shore!

Set in the beautiful landscape of the Cariboo Chilcotin region, Dipnetting with Dad is a delightful and colourful story of a father teaching his son the Secwepemc method of fishing known as dipnetting. Together they visit the Sweat Lodge, mend the nets, select the best fishing spot, and catch and pack their fish through rugged bush back to the family home for traditional preparation.

In his first book, Williams Lake Indian Band member Willie Sellars captures family values, the importance of storytelling, community living and coming of age in one of BC’s oldest cultures. Debut artist Kevin Easthope’s contemporary and dynamic illustrations bring the characters to life as they jump off the page and pull you into their world.

Willie Sellars is a band member of the Williams Lake Indian Band (T'exelc), which is located fifteen minutes south of the city of Williams Lake, BC. Living on the reserve for the majority of his life, he has been going dip-net fishing with his dad and uncles since he was seven years old. He is currently in his second term as a Councillor for the Williams Lake Indian Band and works closely with the departments of Economic Development and Natural Resources. Willie is married and has two beautiful children, Cash and Milah, and keeps himself busy practicing his culture and playing sports. Kevin Easthope was born and raised in Williams Lake, BC. He attended UBC Okanagan where he graduated with a bachelor of fine arts degree in 2008. His artistic work spans a variety of mediums including oil painting, graphite and graphic design. While he is an artist and musician, he presently makes a living fighting forest fires for the province of British Columbia. DIPNETTING WITH DAD is his first children's book.
