BUTALA, Sharon. Lilac Moon : Dreaming of the Real West. (Toronto, Ontario, Canada) : HarperCollins Publishers Canada, (2005). First Printing. Pp. (6),7-251,(5). 8vo, blue cloth, gilt lettering to spine. "What does it mean to be a Westerner? What is the Western experience and, by extension, what makes up the Western soul? In Lilac Moon, Sharon Butala challenges and inspiresus to think about the West in fresh ways. She begins by transporting us to her Saskatchewan ranch, where a soft lilac moon lights the vastness of the prairie landscape. Then, in a series of wide-ranging chapters that ponder the question "What makes a Westerner?" she explores the myths, the history,the peoples of the three prairie provinces. From the pioneer past to Weste rn stereotypes, from racial and ethnic inequalities to party politics, fromrural legends to urban realities, Lilac Moon effortlessly interweaves stra nds of history, family, politics and culture. Butala’s deep Western roots -her family blends bot French and English cultures and has lived in the wes t for five generations - - and her elegquent, perceptive, and questuionuibfmant style combine to create a book rich in insight and an abiding love fo r the vast region she knows so well. Published on the centennial anniversary of the entry of Alberta and Saskatchewan into Confederation, this is a book not just for Westerners, but for all Canadians who want to know -- and understand -- one of the seminal dreams of our nation." (from the dj). Very good in unclipped dustjacket. 15.00
