Soul Searching by A.R. Jones

An exciting new book coming soon to PPG…  

Soul Searching by A.R. Jones
        

A brand new soul. His first lifetime. It can’t be that difficult,can it?

The innocence of the question Jack poses, as he leaves the world he knows so well and dives into the complexity of life, allows us a chuckle. New and naïve, this soul is bombarded by the senses and restrictions of physical existence—yet once death releases him back to familiarity, he begins an intriguing journey of self-discovery.

The extraordinary beauty and characteristics of our spiritual nature are brought into focus as we accompany Jack on his journey. Time and again, he takes on his challenges—stumbling, failing, learning—with his steps often mirroring our own. An innate desire propels Jack onward, allowing us insight into the world we know so well and the tantalising realms that beckon us.

And we see that it can be that difficult as we catch a glimpse of Heaven and walk to the edges of Hell.

Footloose in the Front Forty by Colin Manuel

First vaguely conceived as a bucolic answer to Stuart McLean’s “Stories From The Vinyl Cafe”, this rustic enterprise took on a life all of its own. They say of farming, “it’s the lifestyle”, and even today many Canadians are in some way fondly connected to the family farm. This book is for them.

The stories are based mostly on true-life incidents creatively massaged to fit the adventures of a retired policeman, Aubrey Hanlon, and his wife Sabine when they decide to try farming. The incidents they get into are always unforeseeable and, usually after the fact, full of humour. The unique art of Ben Crane brings that humour to life in a book that celebrates the farming “lifestyle” in all its earthy glory. Enjoy!

100 Years of Memories: Celebrating Strathmore’s Centennial

An exciting new book coming soon to PPG…

100 Years of Memories: Celebrating Strathmore’s Centennial

Coming soon in eBook, paperback, and limited edition hard cover versions! Watch for it here!

Excerpts from the book…


1882

Americans R. B. Langdon and D. C. Shepard (both from Minnesota) had been awarded a rail contract from present day Oak Lake, Manitoba to Fort Calgary. Both men would meet with such success that their names would be given to towns along the way. The site they numbered 17 would become the present-day Strathmore.

1883

The original 5,600-foot siding of Strathmore was actually on Eagle Lake, 3.5 miles south of the town’s present location.

28 July—In a single day, 6.38 miles of track were laid at what is now the Town of Strathmore. Although it proved to be a short-lived record, it gave the siding some note for years to come.

1 December—The name “Strathmore” first appeared on the Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR) Timetable. It was likely given the name by CPR Superintendant James Ross.

Strathmore’s Scottish Heritage

Today, if one were to do a quick accounting of the cultures that have had the most to do with Strathmore’s make-up, a similar list would appear as with all prairie towns: the British Isles, much of the Western European continents, smatterings of Eastern and Northern Europe, a few unique groups such as the Chinese, the odd Greek or Italian, and there’s no underestimating the impact of the nearby Native reservation’s culture on Strathmore then and now. However, there is no ignoring that the name Strathmore comes from the highlands of Scotland.

In 1883, CPR Superintendant James Ross was giving Western European (especially British) names to many of the new railway sidings across Western Canada. This system of using familiar names had two effects: (1) it helped in the expediency of naming, using pre-existing rather than newly-created names, and (2) it attracted settlers to locations that bore familiar names. Ross had a particular affinity for Scottish names, being himself a Scotsman, and it was almost certainly he who named Strathmore.

In Scotland, Strathmore is the name of a valley of the Isla branch of the Tay River, north of Dundee. The valley is home to Glamis Castle, famously the residence of Macbeth, and the traditional home of the Earl of Strathmore, a relative of the British Royal Family. In Scotland, the name is pronounced “StrithMORE,” with heavy emphasis on the second syllable. Translated from Gaelic, strath means “valley” and mohr means “big.” The original location of Strathmore on Eagle Lake would have been enough like a Scottish valley to warrant the comparison.

Tide Cracks and Sastrugi: An Antarctic Summer in 1968-69 by Graeme Connell

A memorable historical non-fiction book coming soon to PPG…

Tide Cracks and Sastrugi: An Antarctic Summer in 1968-69
by Graeme Connell

What makes a person pack a bag and head off into the vast white, frozen, inhospitable desert of Antarctica? Is it adventure, tales of heroism and sacrifice, science or simply because it is there? In a mix of nerve-tingling drama, history, anecdote, and the physical and emotional unknown, Graeme Connell talks about his odyssey on the continent at the bottom of the world. Tide Cracks and Sastrugi: An Antarctic Summer in 1968-69 is a glimpse of a small country’s Antarctic activity at the tail end of the first decade of modern exploration. It is also a snapshot of a young, disillusioned small town newspaper journalist who seeks change to embrace all that life has to offer for himself, his wife and family.
