A Place Called Winter

Patrick Gale

In order to avoid scandal, shy Harry Cane is forced to make a speedy escape from his privileged, passive existence in Edwardian England. Trying to build a new life in the remote prairie wilderness of pioneering Canada, he's compelled to confront and accept his sexuality in order to find true happiness.

How to Be a Canadian

Will Ferguson; Ian Ferguson

A humorous book about Canada and Canadians - it'll make you laugh and give a better understanding of Canadian culture and how Canadians tend to view themselves and their country.

The Shipping News

Annie Proulx

An originally written novel about a naïve, broken-hearted widower who moves to Newfoundland in Canada - the land of his forefathers - with his two young daughters. It's about healing, moving forwards and learning to live again. The author's unique style of writing takes some getting used to but it's worth the effort - she brings the remote Newfoundland landscape and community to life with wit, poignancy and an astute flair.

Hatchet

Gary Paulsen

A classic survival story for 8 to 12 year-olds about a young boy stranded with only a hatchet after his plane crash-lands in the Canadian wilderness. It offers a gripping and fascinating insight into the country and its vast, extraordinary landscape. It'll make you want to venture into the wild!

Beauty Tips from Moose Jaw

Will Ferguson

An amusing and interesting look at Canada by the country's top literary humorist. Ferguson has travelled all around the huge expanses of his home country and presents its people and places with a witty warmth. A must-read for anyone with a trip planned or thinking of going.

We caught the fall colours just before the leaves started to...

Road trip through Quebec - Part 2

If you missed Part 1, you can find it right here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iEDFxhSkkew We said it before and we'll say it again - Quebec is an absolutely gorgeous part of Canada. This province looks and feels like nowhere else in Canada and it's beautiful all year round but perhaps even particularly more so in Autumn (or Fall, depending on what part of the world you're from). We decided to make the most of it by going on a road trip through Quebec and here's what we got up for...
