The Museum of the Cariboo Chilcotin invites the public to a presentation by author Jay Sherwood about his latest book, Furrows in the Sky: The adventures of Gerry Andrews.
The book chronicles the life of Andrews, a noted aerial photographer.
Andrews was, at various times, a teacher, an engineer, a forester, a land surveyor and a writer. He pioneered the use of aerial photography for mapping and forestry reconnaissance in B.C. During the Second World War Andrews helped to take high-altitude photographs to aid the allies in the D-Day landings.
Historian Jay Sherwood tells Andrews’ remarkable story based on personal correspondence, unpublished manuscripts and diaries, interviews with people who knew Andrews and published articles by and about him.
The book includes some of Andrews’ many photographs.
Visit the museum and learn more about this fascinating man and his Cariboo connection.
The presentation will be held on Thursday, June 7 at 7:30 pm at the museum at Fourth Avenue and Borland Street. Admission is free.
