Cabin at Singing RiverBook - 2001
Listeners of CBC-Radio's Morningside will remember the extraordinary letters of Chris Czajkowski, who wrote to Peter Gzowski about an unusual adventure: In her late 30s, unskilled in construction techniques, Chris headed into the interior of B.C., cleared a piece of land and built her own home. Much more than a lyrical celebration of the natural world, Cabin at Singing River is a story of courage, perseverance and imagination. From the moment Chris sets her inexperienced foot into an unsteady canoe until the triumphant day she stands back to survey the log house she has built, we are irresistibly drawn into her remarkable journey toward independence. This redesigned edition of a book that sold over 10,000 copies features charming sketches by the author.
