Take Good Care of the Garden and the Dogs : A True Story of Bad Breaks and Small Miracles
The Alaskan landscape-so vast, dramatic, and unbelievable-may be the reason the people in Haines, Alaska (population 2,400), so often discuss the meaning of life. Heather Lende thinks it helps make life mean more. Since her bestselling first book, If You Lived Here, I'd Know Your Name, a near-fatal bicycle accident has given Lende a few more reasons to consider matters both spiritual and temporal. Her idea of spirituality is rooted in community, and here she explores faith and forgiveness, loss and devotion-as well as raising totem poles, canning salmon, and other distinctly Alaskan adventures. Lende's irrepressible spirit, her wry humor, and her commitment to living a life on the edge of the world resonate on every page. Like her own mother's last wish-take good care of the garden and dogs-Lende's writing, so honest and unadorned, deepens our understanding of what links all humanity.
"Take Good Care of the Garden and the Dogs is about her community and her family, the supporters who helped her get back on her feet with love, compassion, faith and humor . . . her writing style is crisp and clear." --Seattle Times - Seattle Times
