About this book

First published twenty-five years ago in Canada’s centennial year, Alberta is back in print! Robert Kroetsch’s wonderful storytelling and travel writing classic captures a luminous land in its golden era. This special edition has been updated for the 1990s with a lively new chapter by Robert Kroetsch; a colour photo essay by the incomparable Alberta artist and photographer Harry Savage (Alberta: A Celebration and The Best of Alberta); and an afterword by award-winning writer Rudy Wiebe. Together, they have produced an anecdotal, insightful, deeply-felt tribute to the land and people of Alberta.
