Creative Provinces--A New World of Enchanting and Empowered Communities
By Valerie Ann Larson Haynes

We can literally create a world... where Camelot, the Roman Empire, the Wild West, Shangri-la, the Tribal Nations, Victorian England, Pharaonic Egypt, Middle Earth, the Vikings, Rustic Hawaii, the Garden of Eden, Space Cities, and Santa’s North Pole... all really exist.

We are not talking theme park. We mean Really Exist.

Creative Provinces presents an inspirational structure for creating the most enchanting communities you can imagine--a unique culture, travelway, industry, or environment--by a community of people powerfully organized as a group of private properties. And it gives hundreds of ideas, examples, and illustrations to inspire the reader to create "Communities as Art."
