Kit and the Calico Cat coverin the shelter of the covered bridge

Poems and drawings  by Jane Spavold Tims

in the shelter of the covered bridge is a poetic and artistic tribute to all the New Brunswick covered bridges remaining in the St. John River watershed as well as to some in other areas of the province. As a poet, artist, and biologist, Jane Tims has achieved a remarkable unity of focus in this book. While each element has its own narrative stance, the poems, the drawings, and the natural history notes come together in a way that has an appealing and satisfying unity for ear, eye, and mind.
