Rate this:
The first volume of a sweeping 11-volume journalistic history of Alberta in the 20th century provides the historical context for the creation of the province in 1905, i.e., the history of the Plains Indians, the Hudson's Bay Company and the fur trade, the American Civil War, Canadian Confederation, the building of the Canadian Pacific, the Riel Rebellion, and the long struggle of the North West Territories to achieve provincehood. The format is magazine-like, filled with hundreds of fascinating historical photographs, maps, other illustrations, and sidebars that complement the narrative. A fine piece of popular (but not simpleminded) history, of particular interest and value to Yankees not commonly acquainted with this material. 9.25x12.25".
