As a semi-retired lawyer on Saltspring Island, Webster Macdonald published his Memoirs of a Maverick Lawyer (Detselig, 1993). He practiced law for more than 40 years in Nova Scotia, Alberta, Manitoba and B.C., often representing the underdog, including one lawsuit against George Lucas, creator of Star Wars, with regards to creation and ownership of Ewoks. Some of his practices and attitudes were unorthodox, leading to a brief suspenstion by the Alberta Law Society.
