I keep two of Knight's books close to hand. His Indians at Work is a compendious account of the Aboriginal labour force in BC, pathbreaking when it first appeared from New Star Books in 1978 and reissued, with an index, thank god, in 1996. Along the No. 20 Line (New Star, 1980, 2011) is part memoir, part history, part oral history, an account of the Vancouver waterfront organized around the route of one of the city's early east-end streetcars.
Most recently Knight published his life story, Voyage Through the Past Century, again from New Star, which reveals him to be an academic maverick, an outsider by temperament, and a highly original thinker. All admirable qualities for a writer.
