Synopses & Reviews
"[Armstrong's] voice is authentic and fearless. . . I had found a book about me. This is my winding road. . . the people of this book are like a broken mirror, reflecting the silvery slivers of my neighbours, my friends, my grandparents and children; these people are me and they are you. . . In The Colour of Water
, I was whisked to the most exotic place of all-deeper into my own heart and soul. . . Buy this book. Dive into it, enjoy it, lose yourself then find yourself in it. Then buy a copy for your friend in the city who will read about this Kootenay land and people, and know you again for the first time."
