Will Ferguson has spent the past three years criss-crossing Canada. In a helicopter above the barrenlands of the sub-arctic: in a canoe with his four year-old-son: on board seaplanes and along the Underground Railroad, Ferguson's travels have taken him from Cape Spear on the remote coast of Newfoundland to the sun-dappled streets of Olde Victoria. Through his engaging and witty prose style he takes us on a journey of discovery through Canada's hidden history and landscape. Funny, poignant and insightful, Beauty Tips from Moosejaw is a provocative tribute to a quirky and fascinating country.
Will Ferguson was bom and raised in the former fur trapping settlement of Fort Vermilion in northem Canada. His other works include Hokkaido Highway Blues (1841952885) Happiness TM (1841953512) and Why I Hate Canadians.
