The story of a hidden city in British Columbia’s Cayoosh Range with a population of only 100,000 residents is presented in Herschel Hardin’s book, Jack in Pemberland (FriesenPress $12.49). Jack Lewicki, a former concrete-truck driver turned aspiring nurse, explores how the city maintains affordable housing, abundant healthcare without draining resources from other areas, and a steadfast population cap of 100,000. Even more astonishing, how the residents in Pemberland are determined to keep it that way. The story introduces savvy characters such as Bark Lady, a sharp-witted store owner and Sir Willgraph Reesy, an expert on global warming, who will most likely make you want to move to this mysterious city as well! 9781038309044
