Bogi Bjarnason ... His Words

Bogi Bjarnason ... His Words

Compiled by Brian Bjarnason and Kate Jarvis

Gifted newspaperman Bogi Bjarnason fought in WWI, ran several prairie newspapers, flew airplanes and wrote poetry. His short story "the Parson's Dream" was published in the company of literary work by renowned writers like Ralph Waldo Emerson and W.S. Gilbert. This gem and a wide selection of other enduring pieces, including letters from the war, editorials, essays and poems, are brought together as an eloquent reminder of the events and issues that preoccupied a generation of Western Canadians whose dreams and sacrifices helped shape the nation's future. From "shuddery" socialism to "so-called" Christianity, Bogi always got to the heart of a story and had fun along the way.
