About this product
- DescriptionAs Julia Harrison's first summer of living in Ontario approached, she became aware of the culture of the cottage. Friends talked of thing but languid afterons on the dock, but Harrison marveled at the investment of money and labour that the idyllic escapes demanded. Curious about the rich and passionate meaning these places seemed to hold, she studied cottagers in the Haliburton region over the course of seven years. Thoughtfully and engagingly written, A Timeless Place considers the family cottage as a place where memories are treasured, national identity is celebrated, spiritual balance is restored, and a few dark secrets are kept.
- Author BiographyJulia Harrison is a professor of anthropology at Trent University and author of Being a Tourist: Finding Meaning in Pleasure Travel (UBC Press, 2002).
