Paulette Dubé is the author of five books and the recipient of a number of awards. Talon, her first novel, made the shortlists for the 1999 Canadian Literary Awards, the Alberta Writers’ Guild Best Novel Award (2003), and the Starburst Award (2003). Her poetry has garnered a number of rewards including the Milton Acorn Memorial People’s Poetry Award (1994), the CBC Alberta Anthology (1998), and the CBC Literary Awards (2005 and 2006.)
First Mountain is a interconnected suite of poems about a particular place — Jasper, Alberta. Paulette Dubé has lived there for more than a decade and her keen sense of the area and the healing powers of the natural world — seeking solitude, washing away stress, and celebrating the intimacy that is experienced by living in a pristine environment — shapes the emotional backbone of First Mountain. Dubé is at peak performance in her craft.
