From the Hudson’s Bay Company, Louis Riel, and the Winnipeg General Strike to bone-chilling winters, flood waters, The Guess Who and profiles of Cindy Klassen, Peter Nygard, Duff Roblin and the Golden Boy atop Manitoba’s Legislature, no book is more comprehensive than the Manitoba Book of Everything. No book is more fun!

Well known Manitobans weigh in on the province. Filmmaker Guy Maddin gives us his favourite lost Winnipeg buildings, former Premier and Canadian Governor General Ed Schreyer details Manitobans that he admires most, Olympic goaltender Sami Jo Small provides us with her favourite outdoor sports memories, broadcaster Peter Warren recounts his most memorable interviews and musician Ray St. Germain lists his top Aboriginal acts. From rivers, lakes, and beaches to the Winnipeg arts scene to famous crooks and hoodlums, Manitoba slang, the Métis and the mighty mosquito ... it’s all here.

Whether you are a native Manitoban or visiting for the first time, there simply is no more complete book about Manitoba. If you love Manitoba, you’ll love the Manitoba Book of Everything!
