To Be The Floral Emblem
This commemorative, 60-page booklet, was prepared by Manitoba author, Joseph J Gajdosik, in celebration of Canada's 150th Anniversary this year. The Canadian floral tour begins with British Columbia's Pacific Dogwood, moving eastward and northward to include the northern territories and ending with the province of Prince Edward Island. Gajdosik poetically expresses the personalities of Canada's thirteen floral emblems. Flowers are shown in detail and growing in their natural environment. Indigenous people are recognized throughout, in the poems and in the brief narration of each region's historical moments. Copies are available locally at McNally Robinson Books, Indigo Books Kenaston, Chapters Books St Vital Mall, Assiniboine Park Zoo, and The Forks Trading Co., or you can order through Joseph directly by phone at 204.261.9235 or email at joseph3@ shaw.ca. $20
