Where to buy it


After living in Australia for 18 years, Juliet Wilson returned to Prince Edward Island for an extended stay. The Island's allure hit her front on: not just the vibration of the gently rolling landscape, with its patchwork quilt of red soil and emerald fields, but the beauty of the people who make up the rich fabric of the Island, their sense of place, and their way of being.She spent the summer of 2009 driving the back roads of Prince Edward Island, introducing herself to people she met on the wharves and in the fields and in their shops, and getting to know them by listening to their stories and eventually photographing them. Like an informal anthropological study, this book gives a glimpse into the culture, belief, and practices of the primary producers who make up the backbone of Prince Edward Island.
