One little question propels both author and reader on a genre-bending quest to find the elusive essence of a Canadian province built on sturdy stereotypes of oil-spoiled, beef-eating, bible-thumping rednecks devoid of class or culture. Through essay, interview, colorful observation, and whatever other exposé it takes to amplify the hyperbolic absurdity of seeking a simple answer to an incendiary question, Geo F. Takach spotlights the cultural complexity of Alberta. Readers will be delightfully edified after a dizzying romp around Wild Rose Country with with Geo and a cast of citizens and celebs (alive and dead).

Geo F. Takach is a political and consummate writer, instructor, speaker, and filmmaker based in Wild Rose Country. His passion for and his unbridled fascination and frustration with Alberta has driven his work to define the soul of a province grandly mythologized and misunderstood.
