Amanda in Alberta

Please join us in congratulating Darlene Foster on her fourth book! Darlene is an avid traveller and translates her own adventures into those of a fictional twelve year old girl who tends to find herself wrapped up in mysteries and adventure as she travels the world with her best friend, Leah.

In the most recent book in the series, Amanda is at home in Alberta and Leah has joined her from England. The two girls are having a great time seeing all that Alberta has to offer: the Calgary Stampede, the Royal Tyrrell Museum and the badlands and Hoodoos. When Amanda finds a stone with a strange mark on it, she's not sure what to do with it, however, everyone seems to want it - including one ornery cowboy!

Great for readers young and old, join Amanda and Leah as they explore Alberta, all while trying to keep a few steps ahead of all those trying to take it from her. And don't forget to enter to win a copy of the book - scroll to the end of the page to enter.
