Manitoba

From Flintabbaty Flonatin to Gimli's mighty Viking, the Glenboro camel to Morden's monstrous mosasaur, Meghan Kjartanson sets out to follow the stories of Manitoba's statues. Featuring over 60 sites of interest, Kjartanson charts an all-ages adventure tracking prairie giants, roadside attractions, and important landmarks, including fire hydrants and golf balls, sturgeons and sunflowers, and, of course, Manitoba's provincial "bird"--the mosquito. Explore the diverse characters and communities at the centre of Canada with this info-packed guide of hidden gems, fun facts, and larger-than-life legends and get to know Monumental Manitoba.

Meghan's Kjartanson's passion for rural storytelling started while writing for a rural Manitoba newspaper, where she often discovered untold places rich with history and culture. She turned this passion into Manitoba Landmarks - a podcast aimed at bringing Manitoba's quirky statues and monuments to life. Meghan's debut book, Monumental Manitoba collects these stories and more together with the hope people are encouraged to discover Manitoba in a different, colossal way. She grew up in Gillam, Manitoba and now lives in Winnipeg.
