Far From Home

Edited by Tyee Bridge

Far From Home gathers five of North America’s finest essayists, nature writers and literary journalists— who all find themselves, in one way or another, out of their comfort zone.

James MacKinnon takes a booze-fueled, satiric road trip to Reno; Susan Olding coaches a high-school cheerleading squad; Deborah Campbell seeks the rare white Kermode bear; Jake MacDonald goes duck-hunting with his father; and Scott Russell Sanders and his dinner guests eat lentil soup in the middle of a tornado.

Selected by Nonvella editor Tyee Bridge, these delightful pieces are alternately hilarious and troubling, nostalgic and provocative.
