Geoff Mynett’s debut book, Service on the Skeena: Horace Wrinch, Frontier Physician (Ronsdale $21.95) is about the man who built the first hospital in northern British Columbia and started what was likely one of the first forms of health insurance in the province when in 1907, for a dollar a month, a member could obtain a ticket entitling them to medical and hospital services. After a career in law, Geoff Mynett turned to writing. Research for Service n the Skeena took him to archives and libraries in Toronto, Vancouver, Victoria, Hazelton, and Smithers. Mynett lives in Vancouver.
