Great Canadian Burgers! I had the pleasure to be published in the June edition of Reader's Digest Canada in conjunction with an excerpt from Charlotte Gill's tree planting memoir Eating Dirt: Deep Forests, Big Timber, and Life with the Tree-Planting Tribe. Winner of the B.C. National Award for Canadian Non-Fiction, Gill writes beautifully about a life in the clearcut. I began my tree planting career with her in the interior of B.C. when she was already a wily veteran; it's nice to come full circle and work together again.
You can catch Charlotte Gill presenting her book at the Banff Film & Book Festival on November 1st.
