Taming the Kootenay




'In 1948, we lived on Nick's Island where they had dyked. The water came way up, and so we moved to town and stayed with friends. The army came in, and they lived in our house, and patrolled the dykes and looked after everything. But the dykes did not break. That was the one dyked piece of land in all of the dyked area that the dykes didn't break and it didn't flood.'
