In his most recent best-seller, Scoundrels and Scallywags, Brian Brennan introduced us to Albertans who dared to be different. Now, in Boondoggles, Bonanzas, and Other Alberta Stories Brennan turns his sights to erstwhile events, both good and bad, that have engaged the attention of Albertans over the years. Brennan roams across the sweep of Alberta history, retelling a wide range of stories for a new generation. From front-page news items (the Frank Slide and Leduc oil discovery) to lesser-known events (the Lonely Bachelors of Dinosaur Valley and the Rainmaker of Medicine Hat), Brennan chronicles some of the fantastic boondoggles and bonanzas that have helped forge the Alberta story.
Always entertaining and often surprising, Boondoggles, Bonanzas, and Other Alberta Stories Brennan's fifth book celebrates the ups and downs, successes and scams of Canada's most vibrant and independent province.
