In mid-winter, it is beautiful to remember when life was a bowl of wild raspberries picked from our backyard.
Here is a photo of Larry taken on the front porch of our log house by my niece Heather Brissenden in the summer of 2009. Heather, a city girl, loved picking berries with us (including saskatoons on the hills of Peace River).
We love winter too. Larry Loyie’s upcoming new book, The Moon Speaks Cree, is set in winter. He shares a way of life that depended on winter’s cold and snow, a memorable season of dog teams and toboggans, traplines and festivities.
