A definitive account of western Canada's early history, this book recounts the fascinating transition of the old world to the new.
Full of bigger-than-life characters such as James Walsh, James Macleod, Sitting Bull and many others, it describes the birth of a new country in expert detail. The writing is clear and balanced and describes the conflicts from the perspectives of all the parties involved.
A great read for anyone interested in the history of Canada's western plains.
