I love reading real life stories, especially those about humans co-existing with the natural environment and all the ensuing conflicts – sometimes the human comes out on top and sometimes nature does. Cris Czajkowski was encouraged by Peter Gzowski to write about how she went from an English village to hitchhiking around the world, ending up in BC’s West Chilcotin with a thriving resort and guiding business. The style is direct and humorous – I can smell the trees and feel the cold water. Was it all worth it? What does she regret or does she regret anything? What, if anything would she do differently? Her newest book And the River Still Sings is coming out in the fall, and promises to answers all these questions. I can’t wait! (submitted by EW)
