Rising: Stories of the 2013 Alberta Flood

Told in a narrative non-fiction style, and intercut with informative history of Calgary and southern Alberta, Rising puts a human face on the massive flood that affected thousands of people and caused at least $6 billion in damage.

The stories are unknown but familiar, commonplace yet extraordinary: an elderly woman and her son forced to flee as their High River home gives way to the water; a homeless man searching the dark empty streets of Calgary for shelter; Siksika First Nation’s emergency responders using boats to pluck residents from half-submerged houses. The remarkable community spirit of Bowness; the Calgary Highlanders reserve forces unit working to save Inglewood, the original settlement of Calgary, from erosion. These and other stories come together to form a glimpse of the remarkable time when Calgary and southern Alberta fell to their knees and found a way to rise up again.

One quarter of the author's proceeds benefit The Calgary Foundation's Flood Rebuilding Fund.
