Field Notes

A City Girl's Search for Heart and Home in Rural Nova Scotia

  Author:   Sara Jewell    
  Publisher:  Nimbus Publishing

Sara Jewell has collected lots of addresses–eighteen in total–including four in Vancouver, British Columbia, and three in her hometown of Cobourg, Ontario. But there was one address that always remained constant: Pugwash Point Road in rural Nova Scotia. She was nine years old the first time her family vacationed in the small fishing village about an hour from the New Brunswick border, and the red soil stained her heart. Life, as it’s wont to do, eventually took Jewell away from the east coast. But when her marriage and big­city life started to crumble, she only wanted one thing: a fresh start in Pugwash.

Field Notes includes forty­one essays on the differences, both subtle and drastic, between city life and country living. From curious neighbours and unpredictable weather to the reality of roadkill and the wonders of wildlife, award­winning narrative journalist Sara Jewell strikes the perfect balance between honest self­examination and humorous observation.

Accented with five original drawings from Joanna Close.
