Volume 2 of this engrossing 11-volume journalistic history, Alberta in the 20th Century, covers the critical decade of provincehood (in 1905) and growth on a scale not again equalled until the 1970s. Among the momentous events of the decade were the long and often bitter debate in the Commons over the Alberta Act, the massive influx of settlers onto the Alberta prairies, the transformation of Calgary and Edmonton from towns into cities, and the fight between them over the location of the capital and the university, a conflict that would rend the province well into the future. The engrossing story is illustrated with 435 photographs, paintings, maps, old advertisements, and copies of letters written by participants in the events. 9.25x12.25".
