Book Description

Oct. 1 2010

Following the lead of her earlier bestselling books, Anny Scoones once again charms and inspires readers with her insights and observations. Using her experiences on a farm as a backdrop, Anny muses on the environment, fate, time and aging.

In this collection of personal memoirs, Anny reaches deeper into what nature, rural life and agriculture mean to us. She explores the thrills, joys and disasters of what really happens in the countryside and nearby towns. Stories vary from a rescued dog Anny met in the town bank, to a grand old white pine tree that was given a new purpose, to a horse who couldn't relax without blackberries, to the joys of the garage sale-even a recipe for quince jelly. The book is illustrated by renowned Canadian artists Molly Lamb Bobak and Bruno Bobak.

True Home is the third and final part of the Glamorgan Farm collection, tales of one of the oldest pioneer farms on Vancouver Island.

Product Description

Review

Living close to the land over the years has taught Anny Scoones how to see the magic details that make life what it is—the laughter, the recipes, the joy and vexation of a cabbage growing competition, the majestic death of an old pig, how to use a 'soft eye' to look for the birds in the trees. She inhabits the presence of the natural world —Brian Brett, author of Trauma Farm

[True Home] is cause for celebration, and I am grateful that [Anny Scoones] finds time to sit down and write. —The Times Colonist

(2010-11-15)

The ongoing saga of Glamorgan farm is delivered by Anny Scoones with a winsome, intimate charm. She is as rare and perfectly ordinary as the west coast heritage farm she lives on. With disarmingly simple prose she reveals the day-to-day lives of the many creatures who share her world and we are made better for the reading about her and them. Her book is a gift to all of us. —Patrick Lane, author of There is a Season
