from back of book:
"In 1985, Mark Abley set out on a unique voyage of self-discovery. His long, looping journey took him from Saskatoon to the small town of Forget (pronounced For-jay) and beyond- through Saskatchewan and Manitoba as far north as Churchil, then west into Alberta. The result of his journey is a warm, wonderfully fresh account of the diversity and individuality he found alive and well on the Canadian prairies. Beyond Forget is a vivid mosaic of th history, landscape, wildlife, and people the author encountered in this remarkable odyssey back ot his roots in the vast Canadian prairie."
