Product description

Product Description

The huge success of Brian Brennan’s local bestseller Building a Province left readers clamouring for more. Alberta Originals is Brennan’s response to the demand, featuring sixty more significant and influential Albertans.

From philanthropists to local characters, artists to 
oil-patch executives, Alberta Originals is filled with people who made a unique contribution to the social, economic, cultural, and political foundations of Alberta. Each person was an original who brought his or her energy and vision to the shaping of a province that has a history of 
embracing the unusual and entrepreneurial.

Brian Brennan provides a fresh look at these province builders, highlighting little-known details from the lives 
of The Famous Five, “Bible Bill” Aberhart, Frank McMahon, Catharine Robb Whyte, Ernest Manning, Bruno Engler, and many more.
