True Tales from a Local Legend
It is amazing what a person can do once they make up their mind to leave the drugs and alcohol behind . . .
Wilf Bennett is the real deal—a modern-day cowboy with a timeless love of a good yarn, and the saddle-sore, rain-drenched experiences that give rise to the best of them. As a guide at Skmana Lake Trail Rides, a rodeo cowboy, the entertainment at Sun Peaks Resort, and a well-known character in his hometown of Chase, BC, Wilf is larger than life with a heart to match. From colorful escapades at the rodeo to close encounters with grizzlies, this collection of Wilf’s best stories captures his grounding in Secwepemc culture, and his life in the saddle and on the wagon. Wilf is an inspiration to many, young and old, and this publication marks a momentous occasion: his twenty-fifth year of sobriety.
There are a few funny stories in here I hope folks get a laugh at. There’s times I had a lot of fun. And sometimes I didn’t. Enjoy the read.
“Thank you, Wilf, for what you brought to Sun Peaks. Thank you for your books, and thank you for bringing the Secwepemc people and the Sun Peaks community closer together.”
