Living in the SHED
304 pages. Full Colour. Photos, Maps, Illustrations.
The North Saskatchewan River watershed in Alberta was transformed from Indigenous people’s territory, a vast landscape rich in timber and wild game, to full European settlement in less than 50 years. The new settlers created vibrant rural communities where basic food was grown and processed nearby. That way of life lasted less than 50 years. How and why did this happen? The whole story has not been written yet, but Living in the SHED explores those questions under these categories: Natural Features, Natural Resources, Pre-contact, Post Contact – fur trade, Post Contact – settlement, and 21st Century within the boundaries of 12 subwatersheds.
Images Alberta Camera Club spent a year traveling into to the 12 subwatersheds in all four seasons to take the stunning photographs found throughout this book.
