Book Description

Sept. 13 1997
Each week, Wayne Rostad and his CBC-TV crew visit small towns, remote regions, or tiny communities right across Canada, seeking out rare characters or striking stories of spirit, individuality, pathos, or humour. Drawing together each show of On the Road Again is Rostad himself, as he takes obvious delight in the people he meets and forges their stories into songs. The result is a portrait of the country and its people rarely seen on national television.
Now Wayne Rostad has collected more than two dozen stories of people and places from On the Road Again, and recounts them in his own engaging way, along with behind-the-scenes glimpses of the making of the show. Among the many people featured are: Haddon Strong of Chamberlains, Newfoundland, connoisseur and salesman of iceberg ice; Jim and Gail Henry, millionaire garbage-dump operators in the Queen Charlotte Islands; bug-eater Jim Thompson of High River, Alberta; and single parent Louise Brisset of St. Anselme, Quebec, who has given fourteen handicapped children a home. Filled with Rostad’s great storytelling, On the Road Again will be a delightful souvenir for fans his ever-popular show.
