We’ll be travelling through my Southern Interior heartland, which manages to be sublime and banal at the same time. There are certain views of the southern Okanagan valley that remind one that the glaciers are not long gone. Endangered spadefoot toads compete for habitat with golf course/condo developers. The contemporary authors who have written about or commented on the Southern Interior are few, and far between. Sheila Watson, George Ryga, Jeannette Armstrong, Harold Rhenisch, James Marshall, Nancy Holmes. Who am I missing? I think this spectacular region is best described as a blank slate, awaiting authors who can make it resonate.
