Millions of Canadians crave a good mental challenge, and in order to feed their hunger many turn to the daily crossword puzzle in their local newspaper. Often, however, before they even get to 1-Across, they must stop thinking "in Canadian" and shift cultural gears. It is a sad reality that Canada just doesn't figure highly in what is undoubtedly one of our favourite pastimes: solving the daily crossword. The crosswords in this book contain plenty of references to this country: its heroes and rogues, its geography, sports, history, arts - its "Canadian-ness." Here the solver might discover a Knowlton, a Gzowski, an Iqaluit, or maybe even a Come By Chance. Our Canadian spelling is recognised as well, in words such as "colour" and "centre", and there is also a sprinkling of French, in keeping with the bilingual nature of this land. These puzzles appeal to a broad range of solvers, from the dabbler just testing the waters to the seasoned crossword pro looking for a serious cranial workout. Many puzzles are themed and titled. Other, perhaps more challenging puzzles are themeless. While the puzzles vary in difficulty and style, they share one critical thing. They'll make you Think Canadian!

Author Biography

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 web sites and publications across the continent. She is committed to integrating Canadian culture into crossword puzzles and her contribution to this book is a stride towards achieving that goal. Barbara lives in Nelson, BC.
