Stories of Albertans Who Made A DifferenceBook - 2001
From philanthropists to local characters, artists to oil-patch explorers, the people between the covers of this book made a unique contribution to the social, economic, cultural, and political foundations of Alberta. Each was an original who brought his or her energy, enthusiasm, and vision to the shaping of a province that has a history of embracing the unusual and entrepreneurial.
Brian Brennan's first book, the bestselling Building a Province: Sixty Alberta Lives , gave readers a taste for local biographies and they have been clamoring for more ever since.
Alberta Originals is Brennan's response to the demand, featuring sixty more entertaining stories of significant Albertans including The Famous Five, Bible Bill Aberhart, Frank McMahon, Catharine Robb Whyte, Ernest Manning, Bruno Engler, and many more.
