History of Saskatchewan and its People - Complete in 3 Volumes
Product No. CA0222-C
Written by John Hawkes and first published in 1924, this work of over 2000 pages was originally bound as three volumes, but organized into two subject areas. The whole of vol. 1 and a good part of vol. 2 contains the “story” of Saskatchewan while the remainder of vol. 2 and the whole of vol. 3 is packed with the biographies of about 660 prominent Saskatchewans, and more than 50 photographic portraits. The “story” section is also illustrated with over 235 photographs of subjects such as early dwellings and settlements, people, natural history, and many fascinating early photographs of native people and their ceremonies.
This work is a rich treasure trove for genealogists and historians. Of special interest to anyone seeking the experience of early Saskatchewan are the recounted tales of the original settlers and pioneers which John has used as a part of the rich "story" section.
For those whose interests are restricted to only the stories or the biographies section we have released individual CDs carrying only those sections see CA0222-H and CA0222-B, at a more economical price.
As usual, we have placed a "sampler" on our downloads page so you can see a little of what is in these fabulous volumes, including the tables of contents for the "history" section and the lists of names of the biography subjects. The whole of the book has been formatted for searches using Adobe Reader™ or similar application, and enhanced with our FastFind technology so that search results can be presented almost instantaneously.
