Anyone who has ever spent time at a cabin, camp, cottage, or lake retreat will appreciate the sentimental stories shared in Cabin Glory, a book filled with charming, light-hearted essays that appeal to all demographics. Author and longtime columnist for Cabin Life magazine, Christy Heitger-Ewing’s stories cover everything from renovation advice, gardening dilemmas, and free-spirited fishing expeditions to boating addiction, movie-making magic, and lakeside marriage proposals.
Christy poignantly recalls first love, lasting love, love at first sight, and love of all things outdoors, including sing-alongs round crackling bonfires, adventurous hill climbs with siblings, and learning just what it takes to be a bonafide “lake girl.” In addition, Christy shares tales of what it’s like to sled with a reluctant toddler, battle an army of aggressive ants, and get lost in cabin country (not, as it turns out, such a bad thing!). Her stories remind us all why the cabin is a pooch’s paradise, a human’s haven, and a nostalgic nirvana for all who step foot on cabin property.
Whether you’re a seasoned cabin owner, are new to the cabin community, or simply enjoy celebrating a more laid-back lifestyle, you’ll enjoy the timeless essays in Cabin Glory as they offer a personal, inviting, widely identifiable perspective of what it is to enjoy cabin living.
