This book recounts 32 individual stories of Jockie Loomer-Kruger’s growing up years at the head of Nova Scotia’s Annapolis Valley, in the apple-growing community of Falmouth.
Told with candor, sensitivity, and humor, the stories are sad, poignant, and laugh-out-loud funny. Each story is illustrated by the author in a folk-art style that colorfully evokes a feeling of childhood.
The original artwork is on display at the Museum operated by the West Hants Historical Society in Windsor, Nova Scotia. And copies of the book may be obtained by contacting: http://westhantshistoricalsociety.ca/museum/
