  Out of the Rain: A Prairie Boy's Struggle for a New Life in Coastal British Columbia 1939-1949: During the Dirty Thirties thousands of families packed their meager possessions and fled the prairie provinces for the coast where, rumor had it, making a living was easier. Some prospered, most struggled and a few were never heard from again. Out of the Rain tells the true story of one young man and his family after they make the move west in 1938.

Through his descriptive and engaging style, author Paul Jones takes us along a journey through a decade of his life as he secures a job in the up-coast paper town of Ocean Falls and gains confidence during the war as a member of the Canadian Navy. In the years following, he acquires the rudiments of a trade and leaves the northern rain coast to make his way in the outside world.
