The Saskatchewan Book of Musts is a Must Have
Whether you are a Saskatchewan resident or someone who plans to visit Saskatchewan, a new book entitled, Saskatchewan Book of Musts: The 101 Places Every Saskatchewanian MUST See by D. Grant Black, is something you’ll want to have.
In only a few short months the Saskatchewan Book of Musts has become the bestselling title in the province and one of the bestselling travel titles in the country. And, in March of this year, author D. Grant Black and his book received the "Travel Media Award for Travel Journalism" at the Tourism Saskatchewan Awards of Excellence.
So what is a book of musts? Like this publication, it is a list of places – obvious, unknown, or even peculiar – that we take our friends, families and visitors to. It can be a waterfall, a pub, a park or just a quiet place in the woods. These are places of the heart, rather than places on a map.
The Saskatchewan Book of Musts includes everything from fox hunting Victorian-style, to the crooked trees of Alticane, to sipping cappuccinos on Broadway, or spa hopping and tunnel touring. From strolling Regina’s Wascana Centre, to exploring outlaw haunts in the Big Muddy, to seeing where Grey Owl lived and learning all about Canada’s Mounties.
The book also includes comments and ideas from notable Canadians, such as Sheila Coles, Andrea Menard, John Gormley and many others.
