SAVOIR FAIRE (FR)

Stories, tools, and wisdom from our grandparents

$49.95 CAD

Deep grooves of experience, hard-won advice, and wisdom anchored in the present: Savoir Faire draws up an inventory of skills and know-how from our grandparents with the unexpected potential to equip us for tomorrow, and which could easily slip between the cracks of generations.

Traveling from urban yards to the vast countrysides of Québec, Ontario and the Maritimes, journalist Eugénie Emond introduces us to twenty elders who share their knowledge.
