Marianne - Author and Historian

About Marianne

Marianne Van Osch

Marianne Van Osch lives in Forest Grove, a unique community in the South Cariboo of British Columbia, where history lives within the pioneers who shaped the land.

Marianne interviews the people who grew up on remote homesteads when survival was a daily challenge, and explores the pioneer experience at a time when neighbours were few and far between, and mail service a full day's walk from home. The resulting books preserve a way of life lost in the technological developments of a modern world.

A former teacher, Marianne also contributes stories of local and historical interest to the 100 Mile Free Press and various magazines; visits elementary schools for interactive historical presentations; and presents short story and book readings.
