Saint-Léon

SaintLeonFRTexte: Marie Labossière et Yvette Gaultier
Photographie: Michel Grandmaison
Réalisé dans le cadre de la série Lieux et paysages du Manitoba, cet ouvrage présente des pans d’histoire de Saint-Léon, au Manitoba, depuis sa fondation. Les textes de Marie Labossière et et Yvette Gaultier sont accompagnés de photos contemporaines du photographe Michel Grandmaison et de photos d’archives. Saint-Léon est situé à près de 150 kilomètres au sudouest de Winnipeg, au coeur de la région de la Montagne Pembina. Pionnier un jour, pionnier toujours. En tant que paroisse mère de la région, le village de Saint-Léon est riche en histoire et, aujourd’hui, il joue un rôle précurseur dans le domaine de l’énergie verte et de l’écologie. Son emplacement est un réel tableau vivant: le village est accroché au flanc d’une colline, bordé d’un bosquet et agrémenté par deux lacs.

Sous la direction de Marie Labossière et Yvette Gaultier, ce livre est riche en histoire de la région, et présente également les attraits du village aujourd’hui: des paysages pittoresques à l’écomusée et aux éoliennes qui parsèment la région.

Récipiendaire de distinctions prestigieuses, les photographies de Michel Grandmaison ont été présentées dans des nombreuses revues dont le National Geographic, Canadian Geographic, Audubon, Sélection du Reader’s Digest, les publications de Parcs Canada, Maclean’s, L’actualité, Outdoor Photography Canada, Time Canada et National Geographic Traveler.

The St. Boniface Cathedral

EnglishCathedralWebCover

Authors: Gaboury – Therrien – Grandmaison

The St. Boniface Cathedral coffee-table book, part of the Manitoba CountryScapes series, chronicles the history of St. Boniface’s six churches and cathedrals since the Mission was founded in 1818. The contemporary photos by award-winning photographer Michel (Mike) Grandmaison complete the archive pictures and history presented by author Joanne Therrien.

“The memory of the Cathedral ruins after the fire is still vivid in my mind,” says book co-author and architect of the current cathedral, Étienne Gaboury. “…despite the ravages of the fire, the Cathedral was still there, imposing and majestic.” In The St. Boniface Cathedral, Étienne Gaboury focuses on the architectural and spiritual elements that make the Cathedral a unique landmark in Western Canada.

La guerre du cochon

La guerre du cochonA historical account
By Nadine Mackenzie

History has shown us that wars have been started for a myriad of different reasons. And in 1859 an American settler’s assassination of a somewhat gluttonous British pig was all it took to set off a conflict between the two countries. It then became necessary to settle the thorny issue of just who owned the tiny island of San Juan off Vancouver Island in British Columbia, an issue that was left hazy in the Oregon Treaty of 1846 determining the Canadian-American border for the western half of the continent.
