In 1993, Talonbooks released a final volume of George Ryga's posthumous writing, Summerland ($19.95), edited by his sister, Ann Kujundzic. This final book from Ryga is a collection of essays and excerpts that reflects Ryga's deeply political nature and his abiding sympathy for the downtrodden. Ann Kujundzic of Summerland, B.C. was a guiding force within the George Ryga Society until it was disbanded in 2014. She is one of the few people who have a copy of George Ryga's first book, Song of My Hands & Other Poems, privately published in 1956.
