Living in the north of Canada in Peace Country is a different kind of life, full of characters and situations and unique challenges unlike anywhere else. Some people come to the Peace, maybe looking for adventure, or to make some quick cash, take one look around and flee for their lives, while others fall in love with this wild country, hunker down, settle in and embrace it. The people of the north are a special breed. Their stories are contained in this book—stories you may not have known, or perhaps will instantly recognize.
These are heartfelt, sometimes funny, sometimes heartbreaking stories. They will make you think, make you grateful, make you laugh, make you humble, make you see yourselves and your neighbours in a true, unfiltered light.
The book you have in your hands presents the blood, sweat and tears of eighteen local writers—writers who care very much about the words they’ve assembled and the message they’re sending out into the world.
Find a quiet spot and immerse yourself in Peace Talks. You’ll be glad you did.
