4 Ford, Catherine Against the Grain An Irreverent View of Alberta
Toronto McClelland & Stewart 2005 0771047754 / 9780771047756 First Edition; First Printing Hardcover Near Fine in Very Good+ dust jacket 
Only slight wear to dust jacket. ; A bright, solid book, DJ in protective Mylar sleeve, unclipped. ; 9.09 X 6.30 X 1.10 inches; 268 pages; "A contrarian view of Alberta and Albertans from the outspoken and often controversial former Calgary Herald columnist.In 2005, Alberta celebrates its centenary: a hundred-year stretch that has seen the province catapulted from being little more than thinly populated grassland and mountain to one of Canada’s richest provinces, one with a fair claim to being perpetually misunderstood. Albertans, of course, are passionate about their province, even when to outsiders the sentiment is baffling. For instance, can a liberal feminist like renowned columnist Catherine Ford find happiness in a right-wing, neo-conservative province? The short form of Ford’s answer is “Yes, I can. But . . .” The long version is the intimate, revealing, entertaining, and opinionated picture of the province she paints in Against the Grain.On the surface, the province is monolithic in its politics, anti-gay, anti-feminist, anti-choice in its opinions, and macho in its demeanour. But Ford shows that this is a lopsided, outsider’s view of Alberta, and to prove it she takes readers on a tour from Calgary to Banff and Jasper, Fort McMurray, Edmonton, and beyond, pointing out the good, the bad, and the plain bewildering. Tough-minded but loving, Against the Grain gives outsiders the real goods on Alberta in this, its centenary year."
