Williams, who lives on Horn­by Island, has writ­ten about the col­li­sion of Euro­pean set­tler cul­ture and the First Nations they encoun­tered here. Her most recent book, Clam Gar­dens, brings to light the exten­sive prac­tice of cul­ti­vat­ing clams for har­vest in “clam gar­dens”, elab­o­rate rock struc­tures that take advan­tage of tidal pat­terns at cer­tain spots in coastal islands and inlets.
