To mark Alberta's Centennial, the Alberta League Encouraging Storytelling has brought together eighteen tales that reflect the diverse experience of Albertans in their province. These stories reflect experiences from longtime residents and recent immigrants, from the aboriginal community and settlers in the province. There are practical jokes and rich gossip-and musings about the very nature of storytelling itself. Most of the stories have never appeared in written form, so the collection is a treasure house of Alberta lore, caught for all time in these pages. Readers will be inspired to collect the bits and pieces of stories from their own lives, to believe in their story enough to tell it…

Lisa Hurst-Archer was born in Windsor, Ontario. Her mother's family came to Prince Edward Island from the British Isles and the island of Guernsey. Her father's people came to Waterloo County via Pennsylvania as part of a migration of Mennonites. Lisa loves to travel and share stories along the way but always likes to come home to the wide open skies of Alberta. She regards the Rocky Mountains and the rolling prairie as her good medicine.
