Arriving in the Okanagan from London at age fourteen, Roger John Sugars commenced a series of diaries that he maintained from 1905 to 1919. Raised near present-day Fintry in a lakeside wilderness, Sugars was educated by his father, a scholar and pianist. He worked in logging camps and on fruit ranches before shipping overseas to serve in France and England during WW I. John A. Sugars of Westbank has edited the diaries for publication as An Okanagan History: The Diaries of Roger John Sugars (Sandhill $24.95). 0-9738153-0-2
