Take a trip through Alberta with some of Canada's finest established and emerging poets as your guides. Writing the Terrain is the first anthology dedicated solely to the poetry of the Alberta landscape and cityscape, by authors who have travelled the main roads, back roads, and gravel roads of this vast province. This collection offers a series of poetic journeys through Calgary and Edmonton, through the foothills, the badlands, the Rockies, the central parklands, and the northern boreal forests. Following in the Canadian literary tradition of "preoccupation with place" these are poems that demonstrate a response to the landscape and ponder its effect on the body, mind, and spirit.
Robert M. Stamp is a Calgary author who has published both prose and poetry. He earned a master's degree in history from the University of Toronto and a PhD from the University of Western Ontario.
