Ferry Tales: Mobility, Place, and Time on Canada's West Coast (Innovative Ethnographies); Phillip Vannini;  2012; Routledge




Another from the Routledge Innovative Ethnographies series. There is an accompanying website to the book which contains audio clips and more: 

"The purpose of this rich and innovatively presented ethnography is to explore mobility, sense of place and time on the British Columbia coast. On the basis of almost 400 interviews with ferry passengers and over 250 ferry journeys, the author narrates and reflects on the performance of travel and on the consequences of ferry-dependence on island and coastal communities. Ferry Tales inaugurates a new series entitled Innovative Ethnographies for Routledge (innovativeethnographies.net). The purpose of this hypermedia book series is to use digital technologies to capture a richer, multimodal view of social life than was otherwise done in the classic, print-based tradition of ethnography, while maintaining the traditional strengths of classic, ethnographic analysis."
