Drawing on Canadian geography, culture, history, politics and trademarks of Canadian identity -- from hockey to snowshoes -- Barbara Olson and Dave Macleod create puzzles that rejoice in what it means to be from "our home and native land". "O Canada Crosswords Book 8" contains 75 cleverly themed puzzles that use Canadian spellings and most importantly a Canadian point of view -- and they promise to both enlighten and amuse, adding to your knowledge about our country while providing hours of entertainment.
Barbara Olson's love of words has led her to earn a degree in French translation, to write a newspaper column on the joys and pitfalls of the English language, and most recently, to construct crossword puzzles. Her puzzles have appeared in Saturday Night Magazine, The Toronto Sun, The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, and have been syndicated to hundreds of websites and publications across the continent. Barbara lives in Nelson, British Columbia.
