More About Vaughn Roste

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Born in Alberta to two pastors, Vaughn Roste has spent most of his life in the Canadian Bible Belt. In spite of this, he has managed to become an normal flawed human being.
A graduate in theology and music, he manages to tear himself away from his computer every summer and spends a good four months living in a tent and planting trees in the Canadian wilderness. Travels have taken him through the United States and Europe and on to Togo, Israel, Colombia, and El Salvador, sometimes on government or church sponsored programmes. He has lived near most of the major Canadian transport systems: the Alaska Highway, the Trans-Canada, the St Lawrence River, and the Yellowhead Highway. Thus, if he hasn't quite visited all of Canada he has certainly had good access to it.
In all of this he feels quite Canadian, and proudly so, and proves this patriotism by leaving the country whenever possible. Ostensibly to promote awareness of Canada throughout the world, he does so in fact as a ploy to avoid shovelling the walk.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Xenophobe's Guide to the Canadians?

A Winner on His First Try  Nov 18, 2002
First of all, his name is "Roste". not "Roster". Please change
that on the website. Thanks. Having noted that, I'm pleased to
say that I find this book delightful! It is informative, humourous as well as full of good humour, and has just enough ascerbic wit to keep it tangy. The style could be called typically Canadian - and that's certainly suitable! - in that
it blends an obvious national pride with a certain self-effacing
manner. Vaughn has managed to peg some of the vulnerabilities of
various places, peoples, and perspectives in this great land and
do it in such a way as to bring smiles instead of frowns - to this reader anyway! By the way, this reader is from the States (a
Canadian resident for 16 years)and all Vaughn's references to that land south of the Canadian border are taken as they were made, in good humour. Anytime he has come close to a bit of subtle criticism, I've agreed anyway!

I recommend this book to all Canadians who will undoubtedly learn
even more about their country, to people in the U.S. who might
pick up something valuable for the first time(!), and to anyone
planning a trip to any part of the Great White North. What he has
written has prompted me to check out several other books in the
Xenophobe Series AND to order a good many copies of this book to
give to friends. do I go about ordering?! Get set for
several printings!
