Mavericks: An Incorrigible History of Alberta
The history of Alberta is a story of tremendous change, set in an evocative landscape. From the Rockies to the Badlands, from the great rivers of the north to the grasslands of the south, Alberta’s physical unfolding is one of upheaval and transformation. Alberta is a weatherglass of storms, a land of high skies and muddy roads, of rueful regret. From Stampede wrestling to the dinosaur graveyards to oil gushers, from barnstorming social reformers to political haymakers, Mavericks gets to the heart of Alberta and her people.
AvH reveals this fascinating province to be a mixture of beauty and recalcitrance, incorrigible daring and infinite tenderness.
