The Encyclopedia of Saskatchewan
As befits the centennial of Saskatchewan’s entry as a Canadian province, Encyclopedia of Saskatchewan is the single largest publishing project in the province’s history. With contributions from more than 800 writers, it features 2300 pieces that cover all aspects of life and subjects like aboriginal peoples, geography, history, social policy, sports and women. There are over 1,000 charts, graphs, maps, tables and many stunning photographs. Already the winner of multuple awards in its home province, hopefully it will stimulate other provincial reference sources.
