CA$17.95One of the biggest steps towards healing is the act of telling your story … Why is it that some individuals give up in the face of a challenge while others are able to rise above?

CA$16.95Confession: My name is Alison and I am a dance mom.
The first time I saw Jesse perform he was nine years old in a group tap number. When he appeared on stage, I remember what a thrill it was to see him up there, but also how cute they all were, how much fun they were having and how much they all obviously enjoyed being in the spotlight.
That was the moment Alison realized she was a dance mom. Her son Jesse's dance career would take him from a local dance school in Saskatoon--a small city in the middle of the Saskatchewan prairie--to Canada's RoyalWinnipeg Ballet School and from there to Germany, where he currently dances with the Stuttgarter Ballett. To parent a dancer to an elite level is a unique and challenging journey as well as an incredibly rewarding experience.

CA$19.95Each Crown corporation has its own story. Why are Crown corporations so important to the people of Saskatchewan? The province has a long history of creating Crown corporations; the first was created before Saskatchewan became a province in 1905. Since those early days, many Crown corporations have been established and almost as many have been sold, privatized or dissolved. In addition, a number of the Crowns began investing in outside enterprises located in the province, in other provinces in Canada, as well as in foreign countries. Many of these investments have been sold off, some at a profit, but many at a loss. And so Crown corporations have been the subject of much political debate over the years. It is this fascination that led to this book.
