Using her esoteric knowledge of food and her love of the island's colorful locals, Susan Musgrave introduces readers to the remote British Columbian island of Haida Gwaii. With her good humour and incisive wit, she tells stories from her time living on the island and the people who live there. She shares recipes of the delicious food she makes at her guest house and how to forage for and cook with local ingredients. This book offers a unique take on food that could only be developed living on a remote island.

The latest chapter in one of the most interesting and unconventional women's lives in Canada. Now living in paradise (up in beautiful Haida Gwaii), running a B&B, sharing family memories and recipes, this is a great read, a visual feast and an inspiring example of life's choices and twists and turns.

A brassy & charming collection of recipes and writing. Musgrave clearly has fun with life and doesn't suffer fools lightly making this an entertaining read.
