High Prairie, Alberta: Centennial Book Committee. Paperback. 320 pages. Black and white illustrations. Includes many family and personal histories, and more. "There are few living now who can recall travelling the winter freight trails over frozen rivers and lakes or crossing the hundred mile long Great Barrier of muskegs, swamps, bridgeless rivers and creeks between Athabasca Landing and Sawridge, on Lesser Slave Lake, during the summer season to look for locations on which to build homes. In this raw, wild land, winters were too long and too cold; summers with hordes of mosquitoes and numerous other blood sucking insects were to short, but that was compensated for with almost endless daylight hours and sunshine that produced endless dayllight hours and sunshine that produced a rapid growth of vegetation, both wild and cultivated." - from Introduction. Above-average wear. Unmarked. Prior owner's blind stamp atop title page. Binding intact. A worthy reference copy. . Fair. 1967. First Edition.
