Blue Grama describes the intensity that is prairie life - people, plants and spaces - and the drive that sends us away and brings us back again to our roots. The author, who grew up in Saskatchewan and currently lives in Forget, Saskatchewan, opens windows into her world as a prairie advocate. From conversations with a prairie bush to reflections of lives of prairie people who populate the author's past, this visual treasure is an emotive ode to all things prairie. Equal to the writings (poetry, songs and one prose piece) are the author's own botanical illustrations, accompanied by field notes, which portray her delight in prairie details not often seen until you kneel amongst the grasses. The author writes, 'This book might save you getting your knees dirty, or it might encourage you to do so.'
