July 24, 2006 - Bay Centre Coles

Barbara Mclean, Lambsquarters: Scenes from a Handmade Life ($1.99)

Hard cover, originally $32.95, recently remaindered in favour of a paperback.

In their mid-20s, a professional couple move to a farm in rural Ontario. This book looks back 26 years later on their evolution into community members, their immersion into place. I'm a sucker for placefulness in nonfiction.
