Editorial Reviews


Visceral details and lyrical writing, often tempered with humour. A view of life in the wilderness without either melodrama or whitewashed sentimentality. --Avi Sirlin, author of The Evolutionist
A rich and evocative read... I love the diversity and creative license this author uses to show the reader all the ways in which one can perceive, digest, and make sense of the world...creatively. --Heidi Erhardt, writer and editor
My Country
will be enjoyed by lovers of literary outdoor collections. --Morgen Bailey

From the Author

I spent the last two decades of the twentieth century nestled in a mountain valley in southeast British Columbia, sequestered in a home of my own making. I had wished to enjoy the privilege of proximate wilderness, and I was willing to take on the challenge of creating a sustainable livelihood in such a place. With my own efforts and help from my partner, friends and neighbors, I cleared land and carved a homestead out of the bush. So easily said, and a decade of hard work done. ... On the wings of that stage the surrounding mountains offered up their pleasures: hiking and camping, swimming in summer lakes, backcountry skiing in winter....

More often, the outdoors served as backdrop to my internal landscape. Drawn outside in warm sunny weather, I would bring along an intermediating distraction, a different sort of tool-- book, notepad, flute--with a headful of questions and new impressions to ponder en route to a random destination.... This, then, is "My Country"--personal explorations of body and spirit, in the time and setting of my BC homestead, community, and surrounding mountain wilderness.
