The compiled articles in Where Orioles Nest and Crocuses Bloom track almost 125 years of life in Western Canada, reaching way back to the early 1900s and travelling forward to present-day. The book is divided into four sections: Our Family, Our Area, Our History, and Our Traditions. Each
is populated with short articles and (in some cases) photographs, whose preoccupations range from a renowned paleontologist named Barnum Brown to the pleasures of making Izzy dolls destined for needy children throughout the world.

Where Orioles Nest and Crocuses Bloom celebrates the natural world of one of the most beautiful parts of Canada. Mostly published originally in prairie magazines, this writerly bouquet is the product of the author's freelance writing after she retired from teaching and began to document life in and around the small Albertan community she calls home. Here she uses careful, lovely words to commemorate the area's people (particularly those who give their time to volunteering), animals, plants, history, and all the special places that have made this natural setting interesting to her.

Although there is a distinct agricultural community flavour to the book's contents, the themes explored in Where Orioles Nest and Crocuses Bloom would find comfortable lodging throughout Canada and the United States.
