Read our Anthology of stories in honour of Canada’s 150th Anniversary. From the North West Company, through prairie settlement and war to modern-day life, with joy, humour and sorrow woven in. We had fun writing these stories, and you’ll have some fun reading them.
Spring is here and my garden is leaping ahead as the weather finally warms. And where am I? I’m glued to my laptop, working away on a story about Canada, 150 years since Confederation.
It’s been a challenge, a group of writers who have committed to each compose a short story or novella about Canada illustrating an era sometime in the last 150 years of history. The interesting thing is we’ve all chosen a story that is quite different from the others, taking place in a separate place and time. With a country this big, and a history this long, it hasn’t been too difficult to do.
Given the different areas from the north, the eastern maritimes, the west coast, the prairies, the vast stretches of Upper and Lower Canada, there is a lot to choose from. With connections to French settlers, British immigrants, Russian contact in the north, the gold rush up the western mountains and into the Klondike, America along the southern border, the Doukhabors, Mennonites, Viking explorers—there’s a huge choice.
It’s a stretch for me to step out like this, and also a lot of fun. One day soon, it will be available for your enjoyment.
