Ginty’s Ghost describes Chris Czajkowski’s “retirement” home. After more than two decades of creating and living in a high-altitude, fly-in eco-resort, Chris has purchased a derelict homestead in western British Columbia. The only previous residents, Ginty Paul and her father, were well educated and reasonably well off, but chose to live in a tiny shack with all their goats and chickens. Considered eccentric by the locals who provided a wealth of stories about her, Ginty’s dream was never finished. The place had been abandoned for twenty years when Chris moved in.
Illustrated by Chris’s photographs, this is an account of a resourceful and experienced wilderness dweller.
