Sherry Sikstrom Shares Prose Highlighting Canadian Beauty
After writing her first book, "Telling Tails", author Sherry Sikstrom wanted to share more stories from her wonderful life in Alberta. In doing so, she now pens her newest book of stories, poems and feelings with "Tails Trails and Campfire Stories: Photographs, Poetry and Musings of an Alberta Farm Girl" (published by Trafford Publishing).
"In a society that has become jaded, lost is the feeling of down home country or small town friendships, along with the sense of fellowship," says Sikstrom. "I believe this book reminds us of a simpler time, when neighbors were friends and supported one another. So much violence in popular media leaves us searching for solace and a more gentle and kind world."
Excerpt from the poem "Seasons":
"A single leaf falls like a tear
As the fall begins this year
Summer days come to an end
And the fall begins again
The colors change overnight
And reflect their beauty in the light
The Canada geese, heed the call
And gather up to fly each fall"
"Tails Trails and Campfire Stories" is a collection of Sikstrom's own thoughts, poems and photos sharing experiences of her life, history and feelings spent in beautiful rural Alberta, Canada.
