In Courting Saskatchewan, Carpenter captures the poetry of the prairies, confronts the brevity of life and the depression brought on by the dead of a Saskatchewan winter, takes hilarious delight in his own and other people's foibles, and reflects on the importance of his friends. By turns humorous, light hearted and profound, this intensely personal book is suffused with Carpenter's own keen sense of home and his love of Saskatchewan.

David Carpenter is the author of several books of fiction, including Jewels, Jokes for the Apocalypse and God's Bedfellows, and two non-fiction books, Fishing in the West and Writing Home. He has also won two Canadian Magazine Awards and two Western Magazine Awards for his essays. He lives and writes in Saskatoon, where he has also taught at the University of Saskatchewan.
