Learning to Make the Perfect Pie, Sing When You Need To, and Find the Way Home with farmer Evelyn
Don't let the quaint and homespun title fool you. This book is a beautifully written and engaging homage to Evelyn Curtis Losack, a woman farmer and water rights activist from Corrales, New Mexico, a small community on the northern outskirts of Albuquerque. Through the sensitive journalist eye of writer/photographer Stacia Braude-Spragg, this book is a personal introduction to a life well lived, one with conviction, which will have universal appeal.
This beautifully told story about an eccentric matriarch-farmer and her village of Corrales is an absolute treasure. Anyone who has called New Mexico home, whether for a very short time or for generations, needs to sit down with [the book] for the sheer joy of reading it and for the portrait it makes of a New Mexican farming community and the values that make it so.
Stacia Spragg-Braudes lively homage to Corrales and its heroes and characters is a fine example of how to celebrate a small community through preserving its individual and collective memories for future generations.
