Marcone, Matthew Vincent, author
The stories in this book focus on the areas surrounding La Crete, Fort Vermilion, High Level, Peace River, Rainbow Lake, Zama City and Mackenzie County – an enormous yet remote area with a fascinating history. This book is the by-product of learning the origin stories of a community I’ve fallen in love with over a period of five years, one that I initially stumbled into by accident and continues to play a major role in our story.It was here that an entire community would welcome me with open arms and help develop my skills as a storyteller. I learned how to interview, research, write fact-based stories, connect with an audience, and develop a network that allowed me to start Liberty Multimedia. Today our company creates professional videos, workshops, websites, written stories and e-books that enhance the online profile of great people, organizations and ideas over time.Our story is not unique. Northern Alberta has provided opportunities for thousands of people over the years. Some choose to settle permanently while others leave after gaining experience in their respective fields. In my case, the opportunities looked so much brighter here than anywhere else in Canada that it seemed crazy not to invest time and resources into the community long-term.
