Alison Calder and Robert Wardhaugh in their book History, Literature, and the Writing of the Canadian Prairies question this view of the Canadian West and have set out to show that the Prairie is a construct, created in this case by writers whose visions of the territory reflect their experiences as much as they do the environment. This book should have broad appeal among those who study the Canadian west, although it is primarily the work of literary scholars and as such probably of greatest interest to others who study Prairie writers.

The Canadian Prairie has long been represented as a timeless and unchanging location, defined by settlement and landscape. Now, a new generation of writers and historians challenge that perception and argue, instead, that it is a region with an evolving culture and history. This collection of ten essays explores a more contemporary prairie identity, and reconfigures “the prairie” as a construct that is non-linear and diverse, responding to the impact of geographical, historical, and political currents. These writers explore the connections between document and imagination, between history and culture, and between geography and time.     The subjects of the essays range widely: the non-linear structure of Carol Shield’s The Stone Diaries; the impact of Aberhart’s Social Credit, Marshall McLuhan, and Mesopotamian myth on Robert Kroetsch’s prairie postmodernism; the role of document in long prairie poems; the connection between cultural tourism and heritage; the theme of regeneration in Margaret Laurence’s Manawaka writing; the influence of imagination on geography in Thomas Wharton’s Icefields; and the effects on an alpine climber of pre-WWII ideological concepts of time and individualism.
