Gift of the Prairie, A: Writings from the Southern Shores of Last Mountain Lake

Product Description

A Cree legend tells of the Great Chief placing materials remaining after building mountains on the smooth prairies and scooping a handful of earth from beside it to create Last Mountain Lake. Scientists say the lake formed some 11,000 years ago when glacial meltwaters flowed south into the Qu’Appelle spillway.

The Last Mountain Lake Cultural Centre (LMLCC), at the south end of the lake, is a hub of cultural activity serving communities at the southern end of the lake. It houses the Regina Beach Public Library, two galleries, several studio spaces, including a large pottery studio, a drawing studio and private artists spaces and hosts artists-in-residence.

In 2013-2014 Bernadette Wagner served as the inaugural literary artist-in-residence at the LMLCC. She worked with local residents to support their writing and invited writers with a connection to the communities it serves to contribute to this collection.
