If You're Not From The Prairie

Set on the prairie in Saskatchewan, this lyrical story captures the heartbeat of knowing and loving a place. The text hyperbolically states elements of nature that you can't know unless you're from the prairie: the wind, the sun, the sky, the cold, and the snow, finally ending with a touching portrait of the now-grown author himself, still living on the prairie. The gorgeous illustrations perfectly complement the text, and will bring the visions of the prairie to children no matter where they live. 32 pages, hardcover with dust jacket.
