Literary Nonfiction. Memoir. Clear-eyed and written with the verve and passion of a working-class activist, VOYAGE THROUGH THE PAST CENTURY is Rolf Knight's autobiographical account of his extraordinary life. A PhD in anthropology and fieldwork in northern Quebec constitute his formal schooling, but it was Knight's travels—along the north coast of British Columbia as a youth, as well as trips to Berlin, Nigeria, New York and Colombia—that shaped his politics and views. VOYAGE THROUGH THE PAST CENTURY is an engaging record of a fascinating life, and an indispensable account of a time and place that has marked our age, even as the events that shaped it fade into the past.

"A fascinating account of a vanishing world of rednecks and roustabouts. Wise, sometimes bitter, always insightful and moving."—Mark Leier, author ofRebel Life: The Life and Times of Robert Gosden, Revolutionary, Mystic, Labour Spy
