The oil and gas industry encapsulates the incredible effect Alberta's
plentiful natural resources have had on her economy, history, politics,
social structure, and future. These are the stories of adventurous
"cowboy" characters, reckless risk-takers, speculators,
scientists, politicians, oil well "shooters," and "roughnecks."
The narratives of these Mavericks will facilitate student understanding

affect the lifestyles of Albertans.
