Westwood Lake Chronicles

04 Jan

WestwoodLakeTwenty-five years ago they bought a homestead, in the middle of Vancouver Island, on the water’s edge. There are still reflections off the small lake at the foot of Mount Benson – of gardens and vineyards and woodland encounters.
Westwood Lake Chronicles is a “dreamscape” diary, a backyard inventory of life and death in paradise, and the desperate pressures that threaten its existence.
Lawrence Winkler has written an anthem to living deliberately with nature, and the virtues of simplicity, self-sufficiency, solitude, and silence. Find refuge.
Author’s Bio
Westwood Lake Chronicles is one of four books by Lawrence Winkler, who is an ancient physician and a traveler, a phenomenologist, a mushroom forager, and an amateur naturalist. As a young man, he hitch-hiked around the world, for five trans-formative years.

His middle age is morphing from medicine to manuscript. He has a passion for habitat protection, including the (hopefully) final repairs on a leaky roof. Westwood Lake Chronicles was his first book.
He lives on Vancouver Island with Robyn and Shiva, tending their garden and vineyard, and dreams.
