In 2017, Elma Schemenauer’s YesterCanada: Historical Tales of Mystery and Adventure (Borealis $19.95) will present thirty historical tales from the 1200s to the 1900s. Subjects include the lost Vancouver-based ship Baychimo to the mysterious chapel bell in Tadoussac, Quebec. And then there’s Tom Sukkanen, the Minnesota farmer who walked to Saskatchewan and build an ocean-going ship on his prairie farm. As well as Ontario’s daring Lady Agnes, Nova Scotia’s migrating Normanites, gold-seekers in Alberta, and a Manitoba Cree chief who gave his life for the woman he loved. 978-0-88887-650-8
