"Point Roberts Backstory" by Mark Swenson
Tales, Tidbits and Trivia From An American Enclave
Point Roberts Backstory tells the fascinating story of a one-of-a-kind American town. Perched on the tip of a Canadian peninsula which extends into U.S. waters, Point Roberts is a community like no other.
Residents - including the school kids - have to drive through Canada to get to this unique "exclave" from the U.S. mainland.
Point Roberts has seen it all: mysterious middens, smugglers, pirates, squatters, Icelandic-speaking settlers, rock stars and thousands of Canadians. They all mix in an unbelievable history all the more amazing when you learn it all happened in its tiny five square miles.
