The Paddling Chef, Second Edition: A Cookbook For Canoeists, Kayakers, And Rafters

     You love to paddle.  And you love to eat.  So why are you still slurping soggy ramen out of a grubby coffee cup, when you could be revelling in a luxurious camp meal?  The Paddling Chef was written for people who paddle, but who no longer want to be penalized for their love of the outdoors by lifeless meals.

     Paddler Dian Weimer shows hungry readers how to pack, carry and cook outdoor meals that help make waterborne trips memorable–for all the right reasons.  International in flavour, this cookbook contains tasty snippets from Indian, Chinese and Japanese foods, and a section on wild foods.

The Tides of Time: A Nova Scotia Book of Seasons (Paperback)

The Tides of Time: A Nova Scotia Book of Seasons (Paperback)

     Set in northeastern Nova Scotia and Cape Breton, The Tides of Time: A Nova Scotia Book of Seasons paints vivid portraits of contemporary labourers whose harvests mark the rhythms of the seasonal year.  Each of the twelve monthly chapters tells the story of a labour unique to that month, including jobs like tuna fishing, cranberry farming, maple syrup production, sheep farming, beekeeping, lobster fishing, and foraging for wild mushrooms.

     Stewart revitalizes an older, contemplative view of the sacredness of time.  In keeping with the genre of nature writing, her book offers a meticulous way of looking at the world as she blends first-hand observations of seasonal change with stories of the labourers.  The Tides of Time offers a refuge from the rush of urban life.  It turns to the seasons, rural life and literature for an alternative mode of time, which is fluid, rhythmic, and gentle.  The simplicity is there—close at hand.
