Summary

Mike McCardell’s instinct for finding the perfect story at just the right time has led him to a lifetime of great scoops and gripping tales as an author and Vancouver news icon. Years of chasing and reporting human-interest stories have honed his ability to see the deeper meaning behind the everyday, and to capture the universal and familiar in even the strangest and most outlandish events. With this open-hearted approach, McCardell has become a master of weaving stories that are uplifting, compassionate and full of his signature brand of humour.
 
It is no wonder then that so many of the stories from his bestselling books have become old favourites, to be reread and enjoyed over and over again. In Shoelaces are Hard, McCardell delivers brand-new stories in his classic format, to join other much-loved titles like Unlikely Love Stories, The Blue Flames That Keep Us Warm and Everything Works on the shelf. With a fresh batch of quirky and inspiring tales, Shoelaces are Hard is sure to quickly become a new favourite.

    The first in the new Counterpoints series, Think Little is an evergreen, ever-urgent, and now pocket-sized argument for focused and inclusive climate change activism
    Designed and priced for point-of-sale, the Counterpoints series will feature essays, poems, and stories from Wendell Berry, Gary Snyder, Mary Robison, Betty Fussell, MFK Fisher, and many more
    Berry argues that environmental activism and policy change cannot only be a public, large-scale, corporate- and organization-led; instead, changes must happen at the person, individual, and community levels in order for our attempts to slow climate change to be successful. Just as the Civil Rights movement had to become personal, had to be adopted in homes and communities across the country in order to gain momentum and critical mass, so too does environmental activism
    Berry also reminds us that the forces that would exploit people based on their race, gender, and socioeconomic status are the same forces that are content to exploit the earth for its natural resources
