About This Item

Toronto: Manitoba Historical Society in Association with McClellend and Stewart Limited, 1970. Illustrated title page. Generous list of maps and illustrations provided. Preface by W. Steward Martin. Foreword by W.L Morton followed by author's Preface and an introduction. The Centennial History of Manitoba spans a colorful panorama of events in the history of this province in the celebration of its centenary. James A. Jackson, Manitoba scholar, teacher and historian, brings to life the turbulent days of the fur trade, the buffalo hunt, and the suffering and dedication of the Selkirk Settlers to maintain their claim in a hostile land. Mr. Jackson recreates Riel's bloody rebellion, his provisional government and violent death, the undoing of John Norquay at the hands of John A Macdonald, The Legislative Building scandal of 1915, and the Winnipeg General Strike of 1919. This is a vivid history of Manitoba's cultural, political and economical life. Two very interesting sections of illustrations will be found. A few examples: York Factory 1821 from a water color by Peter Rindisbacker.... Fort Prince of Wales 1769 from a sketch by Samuel Hearne.... Fort Gibraltar 1804 from a water color by Rev. H.J. Robertson.... Red River natives of Scots and Indian origin.... Chippewas at Fort dufferin near Emerson 1873.... Main Street Winnipeg looking south from Notre Dame 1872.... Typical Mennonite housebarn built 1890 and much more. An index has been provided. A clean bright book in a pictorial wrap-around price-intact dust jacket. The illustrated dust jacket depicts Winnipeg 1875. An impressive body of work. ISBN: 0-7710-4372-4. First Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Very Good. JAmes A Jackson Manitoba Historian + Manitoba History + Selkirk Settlers + Riel Rebellion + John Norquay + Louis Riel + Winnipeg General Strike 1919 + Winnipeg + Manitoba + Fur Trade + Manitoba Historical Society + Exploration + The Great Depression.
