Written by John Hawkes and first published in 1924, this is a work of over 2000 pages which is bound as three volumes but organized into two subject areas. The whole of vol. 1 and good part of vol. 2 contains the "story" of Saskatchewan. The "story" section is also liberally illustrated with over 235 photographs illustrating subjects such as early dwellings and settlements, individuals, natural history, and including many fascinating early photographs of native people and their ceremonies.
This work is a rich treasure trove for genealogists and historians. Of special interest to anyone seeking the experience of early Saskatchewan are the recounted tales of the original settlers and pioneers which John has used as a part of the rich "story" section. For those whose interests are restricted to only the "story" section we have released this individual CD, although for only a little more you could own the CD containing the whole three volume work see CA0222-C.
