Synopsis: One little question propels both author and reader on a genre-bending quest to find the elusive essence of a Canadian province built on sturdy stereotypes of oil-spoiled, beef-eating, bible-thumping rednecks devoid of class or culture. Through essay, interview, colourful observation, and whatever other exposť it takes to amplify the hyperbolic absurdity of seeking a simple answer to an incendiary question, Geo Takach spotlights the cultural complexity of this perplexing province. Readers will be delightfully edified after a dizzying romp around Wild Rose Country with Geo and a cast of citizens and celebs (alive and dead).

From the Back Cover: One little question propels both author and reader on a genre-bending quest to define the elusive essence of a Canadian province known for sturdy stereotypes of oil-spoiled, beef-eating, bible-thumping rednecks devoid of class or culture. Fascinated and frustrated by his Albertan home, Geo Takach uses any and every available means to find a simple answer to this incendiary question. Through a kaleidoscope of research, interviews and colourful observations, he showcases the complexity and contradictions of this perplexing place. Join Geo and an amazing cast of citizens and celebs (alive and dead) on a dizzying and often hilarious romp around a province grandly mythologized and misunderstood. Geo Takach is a prolific and consummate writer, instructor, speaker and filmmaker based in Wild Rose Country. He has suffered for his art and now he would like it to be your turn.
