Product Description


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


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


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
