Extending the form of autobiography, Rhenisch explores the immigrant experience in the orchard gardens of the Okanagan. The search for paradise in the new land, its discovery and loss, are portrayed through the experiences of a young boy struggling against the authoritarianism of patriarchy. This is a book that helps to fill a gap in the history of twentieth-century British Columbia. Prose of unrivalled intensity and beauty.

Harold Rhenisch has published eleven collections of poetry, including Taking the Breath Away (Ronsdale, 1998), a novel, Carnival, about a boy coming of age in wartime Germany, and two books of bio-regional essays. The latest, Tom Thomson's Shack, was nominated for two BC Book Prizes. He recently received the ARC 2003 Poem of the Year award. He studied drama and writing in Victoria, farmed in the Okanagan, and has represented Canadian poetry in England. He lives in 150 Mile House, B.C.
