Under the Wide Blue Sky
Alberta Stories to Read and TellBook - 2005
To mark Alberta's Centennial, the Alberta League Encouraging Storytelling has brought together eighteen tales that reflect the diverse experience of Albertans in their province.
These stories reflect experiences from longtime residents and recent immigrants, from the aboriginal community and settlers in the province. There are practical jokes and rich gossip-and musings about the very nature of storytelling itself. Most of the stories have never appeared in written form, so the collection is a treasure house of Alberta lore, caught for all time in these pages. Readers will be inspired to collect the bits and pieces of stories from their own lives, to believe in their story enough to tell it to someone, to become the storyteller.
