August 12, 2002 would have marked the 100th birthday of one of Western Canada' s most beloved, exemplary, idiosyncratic and admired citizens, the Hon. J.W. Grant MacEwan. "A Century of Grant MacEwan: Selected Writings" is published to mark the centenary of the author' s birth, and showcases the writing achievements of this remarkable man. From his first foray into historical writing, "The Sodbusters" (1948), to "Watershed: Reflections on Water" (2000), this collection offers a fascinating selection drawn from the nearly fifty books that won him a place in hearts and on bookshelves across the Canadian West.
From perilous ChilcotinKlondike cattle drives to the creation of a short-lived republic within the boundaries of Manitoba, "A Century of Grant MacEwan" is MacEwan at his finest, preserving little-known or neglected nuggets of the past for future generations to read and remember. Through his writing, MacEwan shows us our history.
