Linda Goyette and Carolina Roemmich have tapped Edmonton's collective memoir through the written record, the spoken stories, and the vast silences. All of the people who ever lived at this bend in the North Saskatchewan took part in creating the city we know as Edmonton. Citizens with diverse viewpoints speak for themselves, describing important events in Edmonton's social, political, and economic development. They have plenty to tell us.

Most Canadians think Calgary was the Wild West, but it wasn't even on the map when Edmonton was established in 1795! A gathering place for the cultural exchange, horse racing and celebrations. If Riel had been successful our society would be better integrated and more equitable. Let's keep the discussion going....
