Here we are at the book launch for the Canadian version of The Occupied Garden.
Tracy and Kristen signed copies
of the book, as expected, but so did the "characters" in attendance. Rige
and Nick, eldest and youngest in The Occupied Garden, came from
Holland for the launch; middle brothers Rokus and Gerry came from the
United States and Canada; and Koos -- Jim, the authors' father -- traveled
all the way from Borneo. On the table of books sit two beautiful photo
collages, handmade for Tracy and Kristen by their sister, Heidi, and featuring many of the images used in the book's research.
