This is the sequel to Out of the Interior. This is a woman’s story. It portrays two British Columbias, the official one and the one in which we live, and shows how the living (and voiceless one) is rooted in female experience, stretching back for generations in Canada and Europe. A journey through baroque images of paradise, to scorpions in the Okanagan Valley, to wolves stalking my mother in Evelyn, B.C. in 1947, this is a book of love, for people, for history, for place.
