In this, her first book, Templeman pushes the envelope of literary genres by combining personal essays, memoir, and community history with meditations on the nature of language, work, family, and human relationships

Templeman is a keen and insightful observer, who delights in the mysteries of how children learn, how a community is forged, how we, as human beings, knit together the bonds that cradle us. Her observations of daily life in her hometown expand outward into philosophical meditations on art, education, and marriage, and her essays invite the reader into a world imbued with the wild beauty of British Columbia’s interior and the wilder beauty of the human heart.
