When Billi married her husband, a 4th generation Canadian farmer, she quickly discovered there were very little photographs of their rich, 100-year farming heritage. As a writer + photographer, she felt called to do something about it. Since relocating in 2010 to the country from the big city: she was taken aback by the amazing contributions of the farmwives, not only in their homes and in their families - but, in their communities. This book celebrates them, their life's work, and their passionate dedication to the larger patchwork of Canada's Heritage. Farmwives in Profile is a labour of love "heart project" for Billi J Miller that blends heartfelt Q + A's about each woman's life as a farmwife, beautiful photos, and of course, recipes! As a touching tribute to them, some of the families have included a piece as to the impact their Mom has had on their lives. This book serves as both a lasting legacy for those that live here, as well as, an intimate and culinary look into life on the Canadian Prairies for those that do not.
