The Vrooms of the Foothills - Volume 2 Cowboys & Homesteaders
Cowboys & Homesteaders is the second volume in the series The Vrooms of the Foothills by Bessie Vroom Ellis. This social history tells the fascinating story of the 1885 - 1914 era when cowboys, settlers and homesteaders poured into western Canada. Illustrated with over 220 photographs and 7 original maps, the stories resonate with the memories of immigrants who came to southwestern Alberta, looking for a better way of life for themselves and their families. Local people aided in the research for this book, as well as some connection with the family to Cranbrook and area. Notes accompanying book also included in inside cover.
