Beyond Forget: Rediscovering the Prairies

Front Cover
Sierra Club Books, 1986 - Canada - 260 pages
"This is a travel book about the prairies of Canada, an area often misrepresented as being flat and featureless. Abley's journey takes him from Saskatoon and the tiny town of Forget (pronounced For-jay) through Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Alberta, and as the author discovered, the prairies is a region of surprising beauty, variety and eccentricity, in terms of both geography and inhabitants. "Beyond Forget" takes the reader from the decayed brothels of Moose Jaw and deserted churches to the materialism of West Edmonton shopping mall; through the prairies' history and the words of its writers."
