Originally published in 1954, this lost classic paints an entirely new portrait of Canada’s most renowned artist through stories told by one of Carr's dearest friends. Where she has always been characterized as a recluse—lonely, eccentric, and misunderstood—Pearson's memories confirm that she was, in fact, gentle, sensitive, and tremendously nurturing.
Jennifer Cockrall-King is founder of the Okanagan Food and Wine Writers Workshop, author of the bestselling Food and the City: Urban Agriculture and the New Food Revolution, and award-winning food journalist with articles appearing in the Chicago Sun-Times, the National Post and Canadian Geographic. Clearly, she knew what she was doing when she set out to write Food Artisans of the Okanagan: Your Guide to the Best Locally Crafted Fare, a celebration of the Okanagan's wonderfully varied producers.
With more than 125 profiles of the area's artisans, four full-colour maps, and directions to storefronts, farmgate, and market stands, Cockrall-King's book is the ultimate guide for your trip to the Okanagan.
