Open the door; step inside. The kettle’s on, and there are stories to be told that will nourish your own personal journey with aging.
Join Lee Reid as she steps across thresholds and into the lives of West Kootenay elders to hear tales of courage and resilience, creativity and humour, and knowledge gleaned from lives well lived. Illustrated with vibrant photography, Growing Home brings alive the pioneer spirit of elders living in the valleys and villages of this wild and beautiful region of Southeastern British Columbia. Shaped as they are by disparate experiences, these lives have in turn shaped the culture of their communities with generous measures of wit and wisdom.
Come, take a walk through the garden.
Growing Home is about spring planting and fall harvest, and about the meals served and the tales told around the kitchen table. Liberally spiced with garden lore and great advice, recipes and cooking tips, this book invites you to roll up your sleeves, pull up a chair, open your heart and dig in.
