Canadians from all backgrounds and cultures look to identify with their surroundings through stories, and this speculative and literary fiction collection provides unique takes on what being Canadian is about. What resides beneath the blankets of snow, under the ripples of water, within the whispers of the wind, and between the husks of trees all across Canada? Creatures, myths and monsters are everywhereôeven if we don't always see them. This is a unique and powerful collection of all-new, cross-genre tales that take the reader into real and imagined worlds, ranging from an encounter with the Metis creature Rugaru to trolls dissatisfied with modern life, to the demons who follow us from our parents' countries, and to Anishinaabe myths about the creation of creeks. Twenty emerging and award-winning authors explore the way we think about and interact with the unnatural - showing how much the stories we create can teach us about what it means to be human.
