Some Canadians greet winter with a cold shoulder, while others celebrate the snow and ice. One thing we can all agree on: winter brings ideal reading weather. Spanning decades, this collection from author and anthology editor Dan Soucoup (The Finest Tree) shares the inherent warmth of the chilly season in a uniquely Atlantic Canadian way–with grit, good humour, and moving sentimentality.
From Thomas Raddall’s 1910 story of a young widow lost in a snowstorm on a frozen river to Alden Nowlan’s retelling of a Mi’kmaw legend about a man who loathed winter, these stories explore every face–good and bad–of the wintry season. A blend of fact and fiction spanning the region, from Labrador to Yarmouth, Winter: Atlantic Canadian Stories brings voices old and new together to celebrate the season of natural storytelling.
