Native leaders, immigrant farm families, Alberta oil barons, and political reformers all have prominent roles in this live and comprehensive history of the prairie west. Drawing upon recent research- hundreds of books, articles, and government reports- in native, labour, and urban history, as well as his own work in social and intellectual movements, Gerald Friesen has created a new, authoritative interpretation of the prairie experience.
