The history of ranching will illustrate how the prairie grasslands
and Alberta beef became staples and cultural icons in the province's
economy and mythology. These are the stories of early Alberta ranchers
and cowboys living their lives on the range, enduring Alberta's
harsh environment, and how the horse became a symbol of Alberta's
spirit. The narratives of these Mavericks will facilitate student
understanding of how the natural resources of a region determine
how communities are established and how Albertans have dealt with
competing demands for land use.
