9780890135839: If There's Squash Bugs in Heaven I Ain't Staying: Learning to Make the Perfect Pie, Sing When You Need To, and Find the Way Home with Farmer Evelyn

Winner of the 2014 New Mexico-Arizona Book Awards for Biography (New Mexico subject) and Best Book

Don't let the quaint and homespun title fool you. This book is a beautifully written and engaging homage to Evelyn Curtis Losack, a woman farmer and water rights activist from Corrales, New Mexico, a small community on the northern outskirts of Albuquerque. Through the sensitive journalist eye of writer/photographer Stacia Braude-Spragg, this book is a personal introduction to a life well lived, one with conviction, which will have universal appeal.

From the Inside Flap:

It all begins when the sandhill cranes leave, and it ends as they come back. When they leave, you plant. When they return, you harvest," writes Spragg-Braude in the opening to her deeply observant extended homage to orchard farmer Evelyn Curtis Losack and her village of Corrales, New Mexico.

Corrales is an agricultural village where if you come on horseback to the local pizza place you get a discount. When she isn't in the fields or teaching piano to her students, or canning or making fruit leather or pickling, Evelyn loves to drive the roads between fields, scanning the landscape like pages in a scrapbook, moments and images fixed in time. She passes by the crumbled adobes of her ancestors that anchor old orchards where her grandchildren once played.

This book is a journey with Evelyn as she drags the hoe through the earth making her furrows, and we follow on hands and knees behind her, dropping in the seeds. The story shares with readers how someone finds fulfillment, happiness, and a sense of self by connecting to those who came before her and those who will inherit all this when we're gone, to the land beneath her feet and the water flowing, to the seasons, to her food and to those who grow it, and to her community. In this way, it is at once a biography of a person and in the larger sense a valuable parable for our times.

Descripción Museum of New Mexico Press, Santa Fe, 2013. Hardcover. Estado de conservación: New. 200 pages. Hardcover with dustjacket. New book. NEW MEXICO. "It all begins when the sandhill cranes leave, and it ends as they come back. When they leave, you plant. When they return, you harvest," writes Spragg-Braude in the opening in her deeply observant extended homage to orchard farmer Evelyn Curtis Losack and her village of Corrales, New Mexico. When she isn't in the fields or teaching piano to her students, or canning or making fine leather or pickling, Evelyn loves to drive the roads between fields, scanning the landscape like pages in a scrapbook, moments and images fixed in time. Evelyn Curtis Losak is an old farmer in Corrales. She remembers the legendary cherry trees in Miguel Griego's orchard planted in 1914, long gone. She passes by the crumbled adobes of her ancestors that anchor old orchards where her grandchildren once played. Evelyn sings Italian areas among her apple and pear trees. She fights for the conservation of water as if it were her own blood. She pays for her perms with her apricot jam. "She's from the old families," people here will say, referring to the dwindling few who embody and guard the village's heart. It's a difficult mission holding down her family's nearly 150-year-old farm in a place where small family farms have to compete with grocery stores that can produce shippable tomatoes and apples in February, or at a time when the younger generation wants or needs jobs in town. What would this place be without Evelyn? What is Corrales without her farm? This book is a journey with Evelyn on her farm. She drags the hoe through the earth making her furrows, and we follow on hands and knees behind her, dropping in the seeds. The story shares with readers how someone finds fulfillment, happiness, and a sense of self by connecting to those who came before her and those who will inherit all this when she's gone, to the land beneath her feet and the water irrigating the farms, to the seasons, to her food and to those who grow it, and to her community. In this way, it is at once a biography of a person and in the larger sense a valuable parable for our times. Stacia Spragg-Braude is a writer and photographer living in Corrales, New Mexico. She is the author of To Walk in Beauty: A Navajo Family's Journey Home (Museum of New Mexico Press). (Key Words: Stacia Spragg-Braude, Corrales, New Mexico, Biography, Farming). book.
