Winters are something else in Canada. While the part of the country I live in is not as much of the “Great White North” as some of my fellow Canadians (can you say Nunavut?) we do have to deal with some pretty blustery conditions. Growing up, I used to make a lot of jokes about wishing I was born in California! As I’ve grown older, however, I’ve learned that there are so many things that Canadian winters have to offer. And obviously I’m not alone — Chicken Soup for the Soul’s O Canada: The Wonders of Winter focuses on this exact time of year!
Canadian winters are notorious! But this collection will warm your heart, brighten your day, and lift your spirits. Any Canadian — from east to west coast; from city to rural — will love the 101 stories in this new collection about embracing those long winter days and making the most of them. Filled with amusing and encouraging stories about weathering the cold, creating warm memories with family and friends, and playing great winter sports.
I was particularly surprised by the fact that one of the stories was written by a local! In the story, he makes reference to one of my former school teachers and a man who I admired greatly. Finding that story in the midst of this book truly made my day!
