If Moose Could Only Talk

If Moose Could Only Talk
by Neil Gilliat

If Moose Could Only Talk is an anecdotal history of a "tenderfoot" from England who gradually matures into a real backwoodsman with the Alberta Forestry Service. It is a collection of stories and tall tales that have warmed many an evening spent around campfires in the wilderness, a collection of stories that seem to come from another world, but that actually come from not that long ago, and, really, not that far away.

Heritage Hunter's Guide

Heritage Hunter's Guide to
Alberta Museums

by Roberta Hursey

Alberta's fascinating history has barely been scratched. We have museums throughout Alberta more than 240 of them that do an excellent job of preserving Alberta's history and heritage. All but the most popular go unnoticed. Unless a person stumbles upon one while travelling, there are few guides to direct the "heritage hunter" to the many museums that are available. The Heritage Hunter's Guide to Alberta Museums will fill a gap which will encourage more museum visitations and add to the knowledge and appreciation of Alberta's heritage.
