About this book

This book explores a relatively small, but interesting and anomalous, region of Alberta between the North Saskatchewan and the Battle Rivers. The Beaver Hills arose where mountain glaciers from the west met continental ice-sheets from the east. An overview of the hills' physiography helps us to grasp the complexity and diversity of landscapes, soil types, and vegetation communities. Ecological themes, such as climatic cycles, ground water availability, vegetation succession and the response of wildlife, and the impact of fires, shape the possibilities and provide challenges to those who have called the region home or used its varied resources: First Nations, Metis, and European immigrants.

Media reviews
While the great mountain parks have attracted a good deal of attention, the grasslands and the margins of the Boreal Forest have been ignored until now. MacDonald has written an excellent case study of settlement history, ethnicity, environmental history, and public lands policy. - Donald Whetherell, author of Alberta's North: A History 1890-1950
