Edmonton may not be the first city to come to mind when thinking of Canada, but it doesn't make it any less special. "When Edmonton Was Young" discusses the capital of the province of Alberta, and tells its story. Edmonton was a rapidly growing town for much of its existence; author Tony Cashman spins an intriguing tale of the town's roots, its contributions to the nation of Canada, and its original culture. "When Edmonton Was Young" is a top pick for Canadian history collections.
