Join us on Tuesday, October 12, at 6:30 when Saralee Lawrence joins us at Camalli to discuss her new book, River House: A Memoir.
An exquisite blend of memoir and nature writing, River House is the story of a young woman returning to her family's ranch and building a log house with the help of her father. An avid river rafter, Sarahlee Lawrence grew up right here in Central Oregon (Terrebonne) and, by the age of twenty-one, had rafted some of the most dangerous rivers of the world as an accomplished river guide. But living her dream led her back to the place she least expected---her dusty beginnings and her family's home.
River House is a beautiful story about a daughter's return and her relationship with her father, who she enlists to help brave the cold winter and build a log house by hand. Together, they work through the harsh winter, father helping daughter every step of the way.
Sarahlee Lawrence was born and raised on her family ranch in Terrebonne. After a decade spent studying, traveling, river rafting, and earning her MS in Environmental Science and Writing from the University of Montana, she returned to the ranch, where she owns and operates an organic vegetable farm.
