"(A) definitive history of the community from its beginnings as a tiny frontier hamlet to its present-day role as a modern urban centre. Featuring a lively narrative by city archivist Michael Dawe, (it) tells the story of Red Deer (Alberta) - from the time of the great ice age, to the arrival of the first aboriginal residents, to the travels of the explorers, missionaries and freighters, to the struggles of the early settlers, to the heady optimism of those who founded the city, to the hardships and dashed dreams endured over two world wars and two depressions, and finally to the transformation of Red Deer from a quiet prairie town to a vibrant, prosperous city. All this and more is recounted in this rich, varied and exciting history. (It) is made even more fascinating with the inclusion of nearly two hundred historic photographs, many of which have never been published before. As well, the book features an eight-page colour section depicting the panorma of Red Deer today." Minor edge rubbing. Dust jacket has some areas of minor edge wrinkling, two very faint small water marks on front panel, minor rubbing on rear panel.
