Geo's new exploration of the soul of Alberta has been hailed as "an extraordinary masterpiece-the words literally leap off the pages." (Lori-Ann Muenzer, Olympic gold medalist)

"Informative and fun; rings true on every page." (Tommy Banks, senator/jazzman)

"An almost mesmerizing exposition of Canada's most misunderstood province--and a good read to boot." (Fil Fraser, cultural Renaissance man)

Canada's first non-rodeo cowboy clown, Bronco Buddy, says, "It hits the nail on the head about what people think
Alberta is, and hits you on the head with what the real Alberta is. It's funny, but it makes you think."
