Saskatoon

A History in Words and Pictures

  Author:   Amy Jo Ehman    
  Publisher:  MacIntyre Purcell Publishing Inc.

In 1899, Saskatoon was little more than a few wooden houses and false-fronted shops. There were no bridges, no railways, not even an elevator rising above the rooftops. There was no reason to think Saskatoon would be more successful in the long run than any other prairie town. Saskatoon not only survived, it thrived. Saskatoon tells the story of the dreams and determination of the people who built a dynamic City of Bridges on the South Saskatchewan.

Quick Quotes

"ECLECTIC"
"Saskatoon born Amy Jo Ehman goes on a personal journey of re-discovery in this richly-illustrated history of her home town. Engaging, eclectic, and sometimes quirky, the book re-examines Saskatoon's past with a view to separating fact from fiction. Above all, it a book full of people stories that offer new perspective on the city's history." — Bill Waiser, 2016 Governor General Award winner for A World We have Lost: Saskatchewan Before 1905
