Heartland: A Prairie Sampler

Yvette Moore’s illustrations paint the prairies with a quiet beauty.  See the haze of ice crystals around the moon or summer snow resting on cattle.  The informative text, by Jo Bannatyne-Cugnet, point to the unique prairie heritage both author and illustrator share.

From land and climate to play and traditions, this book covers it all, including two local recipes and crafts.
