Canadian Prairies


All of these items are taken from this book: The Great Canadian Prairies Bucket List by Robin Esrock. I love this book and the series covers so many things about Canada. Now this will be both a review of the book as well as making a list of the things that you should see in both Saskatchewan and Manitoba. If you click on the photo you will be take to the Amazon page for this book.

 

Now before I begin I purchased this book myself and personally decided to review it.

 

Review

I have never been to Saskatchewan or Manitoba so I really liked this book as it gave me some ideas of where to go should I actually get there. I was able to see what is available for me to do there and it was really a great book. Now it doesn't include prices but with prices changing all the time that's totally fine.
