Extending the forms of autobiography, Rhenisch explores the immigrant experience in the orchard gardens of the Okanogan. The search for paradise in the new land, its discovery and loss, are portrayed through the experiences of a young boy struggling against the authoritarianism of patriarchy. This prose memoir of unrivalled intensity and beauty helps to fill a gap in the history of twentieth-century Canada.
