Description

A photographic record of the weather—dangerous, devastating, and often beautiful—that shapes the Prairies and the people who live there.

Nothing brings Prairie people together like the weather. It’s a common tie and a topic discussed almost daily at water coolers in the region. When weather events rage across Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba, there are times when nothing and no one is safe. But something positive rises from the resulting debris, mud, and ashes. Resolve and grit take over and Prairie folk rebuild their communities and lend a helping hand to both neighbors and strangers.

With text written by longtime Calgary Herald editor Monica Zurowski and two hundred striking color photographs pulled from the archives of the Calgary Herald, Calgary Sun, Edmonton Journal, Edmonton Sun, Regina Leader-Post, Saskatoon StarPhoenix, and Winnipeg Sun, this book celebrates the indomitable spirit of Prairie people as they face tornadoes, floods, fires, blizzards, hailstorms, dust storms, and heat waves.
