A proud son of Bella Coola’s Norweigan settlers, Lorne Greenaway grew up in the Okanagan in a time when kids left home after breakfast to face the day’s adventures (and misadventures) armed only with an uncomplicated faith in their own youthfulMoreA proud son of Bella Coola’s Norweigan settlers, Lorne Greenaway grew up in the Okanagan in a time when kids left home after breakfast to face the day’s adventures (and misadventures) armed only with an uncomplicated faith in their own youthful immortality.Greenaway tells tales of his adventurous childhood in rural BC, from long days at the river with willow sticks and a hook for a fishing pole to rolling around in poison ivy just to see what would happen.

When Lorne won a pony in the Red River cereal contest, a lifelong love of animals was born. After graduating from high school, Lorne chose to pursue a career in veterinary medicine at Guelph University, where his inclination toward practical jokes helped to temper the long and grueling studies of a veterinary student.In this intimate memoir Lorne describes the humour, tragedies and triumphs of large animal veterinary practice on the cattle ranches of BC’s Interior.

Not long after he had established a thriving practice, circumstances conspired to take Lorne on an eclectic journey from teaching veterinary medicine, to ranching, to exporting cattle and finally into politics. Lorne’s ten years as a member of Parliament and his subsequent time in provincial politics paint a fascinating and heartwarming picture of what one lone backbencher from the boonies can–and cannot–do.
