- Publisher out of stock
Breakfast at the Hoito brings together a collection of stories and essays on the dreamlike world of Lake Superior's north shore ... on wilds and wildlife, people and places.
Spend a day in the kitchen of the famed Hoito Restaurant in Thunder Bay. Discover the secret life of ravens; the passions of the blueberry picker; the thrills and fears of the novice ice climber. Tour Silver Islet, an eccentric summer community that has evolved from the relics of what was once the world's richest silver mine; and the town of Schreiber, half of whose 2,000 residents trace their roots to the Italian city of Siderno. Visit a 16th-century pine forest, and meet Freda McDonald, one of Canada's most respected aboriginal elders. Accompany the author on a refreshingly candid tour of contemporary Thunder Bay.
