Description

The first multi-genre historical anthology of Alberta writing since 1979, The Wild Rose Anthology of Alberta Prose collects twentieth-century short fiction, excerpts from novels, and non-fiction. This anthology explores what writers-past and present-can tell us about what it means to be Albertan-and Canadian. Each piece is preceded by an introduction with a literary biography and critical discussion of the selection that situates the piece within the author's overall repertoire.

Mary T.S. Schaffer was an artist, photographer, writer, world traveller and, above all, explorer. She overcame the limited expectations of women at the turn of the 19th century in order to follow her dreams. Although she died in 1937, her story continues to inspire young people, women in particular.
