About the Book

Expect the unexpected and the unusual when you go Off Road. Take Garrett—the hired man—who picks the right numbers in the lottery, but can’t seem to pick the right draw. Or Elvira Classen who—shunned by her heartthrob in high school—gets her revenge at an auction sale.

Some of these stories are told with a tongue-in-cheek humour while others tackle the sterner side of reality: Old Mrs. Burg coming to terms with a gay son; the widower farmer who meets God in the cow pasture . . . or maybe not.

Although mainly set in the Canadian prairie, the events portrayed are really about all places, and all times.
