The Last Hockey Game

Chronicle of a North Country Life

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

Home is like a leaf on a tree: other people, other homes, are the other leaves. They live beneath the same sky, share the same memories, survive the same storms.

But one leaf is a solitude.

After twenty-five years on a New Brunswick farm, award-winning Canadian author Beth Powning came to understand the land she calls home. Now, almost twenty years after the initial publication of Home, readers may once again experience the spirit of home in nature in this new edition of her seminal book.

Time has made the subtle messages beyond her door become clearer, if not less mysterious: the glorious rawness of winter storms, the effortless dominance of oak trees, the distinctive poetry of night, the universes found within a humble garden.

Placing herself in the dual roles of explorer and storyteller, Powning waltzes the unspoken divide between the untamed and the domestic, revelling in the complex bonds that exist between the natural world and those who would seek to navigate its wonders.

Originally released in Canada as Seeds of Another Summer, this new edition, which includes a new introduction and gorgeous reproductions of Powning's sumptuous nature photography, will inspire those who seek a simpler life and enchant those who are already there.

From Publishers Weekly

May 04, 1998 – Powning combines an extraordinary understanding and sense of place with an affinity for the world of nature. She and her husband, Peter, left their native Connecticut 25 years ago for a farm near the Bay of Fundy, in New Brunswick, Canada. She celebrates their life there in 70 color photos and lyrical prose, chronicling the seasons, marveling at the ephemeral beauty of spring wildflowers and noting the simple pleasures of observation. In winter, Powning longs for a blizzard; without storms, winter creeps by dully. She writes about fields and forests, vegetable gardens and wild fruits, and finds that her life and where she lives are inextricably entwined. This book imparts a feeling of serenity; Annie Dillard fans will enjoy it.
