UBC-based linguistics professor Lisa Matthewson has edited the life stories of four female St'at'imc elders, Beverley Frank, Gertie Ned, Laura Thevarge and Rose Agness Whitley, some of the last remaining fluent speakers of St'at'imcets (also known as Lillooet), for When I Was Small -- I Wan Kwikws: A Grammatical Analysis of St'at'imc Oral Narratives (UBC Press, 2005 $125). Presented bilingually, the informants describe their girlhoods in the 1930s and 1940s in the Lillooet area, providing some of the longest annotated oral narratives for any Salish language. 0-7748-1090-4
