Description

A spectacular full-colour coffee-table celebration of the places people have made to worship in Saskatchewan, and the stories of those who made them. This highly-anticipated companion volume to the best-selling Legacy of Stone: Saskatchewan's Stone Buildings combines brilliant colour images and fascinating accompanying text in profiles of over 60 rural churches, representing 15 spiritual denominations. The writer/photographer team that brought you the award-winning Legacy of Stone -Margaret Hryniuk, Frank Korvemaker and Larry Easton — has scoured the province for sacred places that illustrate the finest of Saskatchewan's art and design. Rural religious gathering places often display the work of folk artists and craftspeople, as well as that of professional artists and architects; they are the last repository of primitive art and such crafts as weaving, metal-smithing, needlework and furniture making. This book presents some of Saskatchewan's most interesting sacred places — places that illustrate how beauty in any form inspires and nurtures the soul. They demonstrate the universal, eternal need for art and beauty, and the importance of valuing and protecting the religious heritage so important to our identity and our proud place in Canada.

Larry Easton is a Regina-based freelance photographer and regularly contributes images to Prairies North magazine. His photographs are featured in Legacy of Stone: Saskatchewan’s Stone Buildings and Architecture of Saskatchewan. He has a knack for bringing out the character and warmth of historic construction. Larry's images portray the unique and diverse architecture of many original churches of the varied denominations in Saskatchewan’s first hundred years. In addition, his keen eye often finds some associated natural or peripheral feature that make his photographs so appealing.
