Abstract:

A naturalist who spent months at a time living on her own among wild creatures in remote jungles, author Montgomery was more comfortable with animals than with people. So she gladly opened her heart to a sick piglet, with no inkling that this piglet would not only survive but flourish--and she soon found herself engaged with her small-town community in ways she had never dreamed possible. Unexpectedly, Christopher provided this traveler with something she had sought all her life: an anchor to family and home. This book celebrates Christopher Hogwood in all his glory, with his boundless zest for life and his large, loving heart, a great big Buddha master. Sy reveals what she and others learned from this generous soul who just so happened to be a pig--lessons about self-acceptance, the meaning of family, the value of community, and the pleasures of the sweet green Earth.--From publisher description.
