When Edmonton Was Young PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

When Edmonton Was Young free pdf Edmonton, circa 1910, never thought of itself as small. The citizens were young, an unlikely concentration of resourceful individuals attracted from older places where they'd have to wait for middle age to be leaders. The young city comes alive in the stories they enjoyed telling on themselves as their budding metropolis remained stuck at the bud stage for half a century. These stories are chucklers, which may seem trifles, but add up to a warm, authentic portrait of Edmonton as it was, and in many ways, still is. Readers who enjoy Tony's previous books, such as Edmonton: Stories from the River City, are sure to love When Edmonton Was Young.
