At the Library

By Mike Selby

Cranbrook Public Library

After her plans to live in Africa fall through, a young journalist moves to Yellowknife only to encounter subarctic temperatures, wild animals, and place to call home in Laurie Sarkadi’s memoir ‘Voice in the Wild.’

Scott W. Person’s ‘Dinosaurs of the Alberta Badlands’ is a brilliantly illustrated guide to the dinosaur capital of the world.
