We are not in the business of selling books for pleasure reading, but Blackberries in July is such a great read that we couldn’t resist adding it to the short list of our book offerings because Sarah loves this book. Full of engaging imagery and rich prose, this book is so thoroughly enjoyable you will want to read it out loud so the people around you can share in the delight. Traveling through the seasons in the pages of this book is a celebration of living in a connected way with the bounty of the Pacific Northwest. This book is a must-read for anyone who finds their home in the Cascadia region, or anyone who wants to know what it’s like for those of us lucky enough to call this place home.
“Biologist Tom Titus returns to his native Oregon in search of old orchards, bay clams, wild mushrooms, spawning salmon, and home. This poetic year-long hunting and gathering of his spirit reunites him with the land and traditions of four generations, and leads to a profound reordering of values and priorities. Humor and compelling personal insight illuminate the emotional pitfalls and spiritual payoffs of the conscious pursuit of place.”
