Description

Geologically and geographically, Manitoba is truly North America's heartland. A place of subtle and varied landscape, it was nearly two billion years in the making. But clues to its ancient past are everywhere––in its plains and hills, along its lakeshores and rivers, and around its seacoast. For the first time, the geological, paleontological and archaeological wonders of Manitoba are gathered in one place. With hundreds of colour photographs, maps and drawings, In Search of Canada’s Ancient Heartland presents an accessible, route-oriented approach for today’s time travellers, creating an indispensable guide to the forces that have shaped the spirit of the land.

Doug Whiteway is a Winnipeg writer and editor. With Barbara Huck, he was co-writer of In Search of Ancient Alberta and One Hundred Years at St. Charles Country Club: A Centennial History, as well as contributing to other Heartland publications. A former editor of Canada’s History magazine, he also writes crime, he also writes crime novels under the pen name C.C. Benison.

Barbara Huck's passion for history began during summers as a child in Saskatchewan=s ancient and fascinating Qu'Appelle Valley and winters wandering through what is now the Royal Saskatchewan Museum. History was put on hold during two decades she spent as a National Newspaper award-winning journalist and broadcaster, and it wasn't until the last two decades that she has been able to focus again on the past, as an author, editor and publisher. In that time, she has authored or co-authored eleven books, including four national bestsellers, and won six awards as a writer and editor, including the 2013 McNally Robinson Book of the Year award. During the same period, Heartland Associates has won twenty-seven awards and been nominated for many more.Barbara is married to Peter St. John, the 9th Earl of Orkney. Together they have eight children, ten grandchildren, and always, a golden retriever.
