1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Jeremy Hiebert on July 12 2010
Format: Paperback
It's hard for me to imagine how this book would be perceived by someone living outside of BC's Okanagan Valley. I suspect the charm and depth of the writing would make it compelling and interesting enough for an "outsider", but for those of us living here, it's a real treasure. It's rare for smaller regions like this to have a skilled scientist-poet holding up a mirror for us to see the landscape and culture of our home places -- a magnifying glass and a telescope too. These insightful, humorous stories and bits of analysis of life in this valley feel just right.

weird but good Aug. 9 2013

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A very interesting sort of stream of conscience review of the area and its features. Enjoyable but I am not so sure it will act as a good travelogue for my upcoming visit to the area.
