Memoir of first-time author Diane 'Honey' Jacobson (1955- ) - In 31 brief chapters, Jacobson recounts some of her experiences from her childhood spent growing up in a multi-family house at Alert Bay. In this home several generations of relatives raised their families under the watchful eyes of grandparents, aunts and uncles. Many of the stories revolve around everyday life at Namgis First Nation. Childhood was a happy time spent playing with cousins and brother and sister. These joyous times of childhood pranks and games are interspersed with family berry-picking adventures, laundry day, fishing, and hockey night in Canada as well as the death of beloved relatives. Family photographs and the house plans of their four-story Big House are included in this charming personal story.
