First stop, The Birches Gallery. Owner Herb Brown (educator, art collector/promoter and organic farmer) has an extraordinary collection of Innu, Inuit and Metis fine art carved from soapstone, serpentine, labradorite, antler and whale bone. Every piece of art made me drool. He’s also a very funny guy. It would take several pages to recount how Herb floated a log cabin hen house from Paradise River to Nain to here … if you visit, be sure to ask. It’s hilarious.
