What is included with this book?


A Few Years Back, Richard Wagamese moved from the city to a cabin in British Columbia's high country. His strolls to a nearby lake became a morning ritual, and in the crisp mountain air he felt a peace he'd seldom experienced. Abused and abandoned as a kid, he'd grown up thinking there was nowhere he belonged. His past was all around him on his morning walks, he discovered, but this time what surfaced were the moments of joy and contentment.
