Having had some experiences on the Queen Charlotte Islands with the RCAF during World War II, and having worked for 18 years as a fisherman and skipper on the B.C. coast, Anthony Carter compiled a sympathetic but not scholarly Indian Heritage series that features his original photographs and stories collected from informants that included Domanic Charlie in North Vancouver. Maps in Somewhere Between (1966) indicate approximate ancient tribal boundaries of the Kitistu, Kynoc, Bilqula, Squamish, Tsla-a-wat and Musqeam bands. The Coast Salish material in Abundant Rivers (1972) was ostensibly edited by Chief Dan George. Other titles were This is Haida (1968) and From History’s Locker (1968).
