In The Road to Appledore: Or How I Went Back to the Land Without Ever Having Lived There in the First Place (Harbour $26.95), due out in May, poet and author, Tom Wayman, shares his journey from urban Vancouver to the rustic Slocan Valley. Reflecting on decades of living close to wildlife, Wayman tells of mishaps, misadventures and moments of delight—from dealing with a bear cub in his kitchen to protecting a water system. The book provides an intimate portrayal of country life in Canada, capturing the joys and challenges of immersing oneself in nature and the contemporary rural experience. Perfect for those considering a move to the countryside, Wayman offers humourous insights and transports readers to the scenic landscapes of the Selkirk Mountains. 9781990776632
