The History of Lethbridge
Non-Fiction – 2020, Self-Published
A late nineteenth-century miners camp called Coal Banks could have been nothing more than a came-and-went map dot – vanishing once all resources had been stripped. Instead, the history of a determined community that triumphed over obstacles and hardships unfolded to transform the city into what it is today.
Through two crippling World Wars, the crime-riddled era of prohibition, the Great Depression, and many challenging moments in time, Lethbridge peaked and valleyed over the last century – creating a unique and underappreciated prairie story along the way.
With dozens of historical photos, The History of Lethbridge details the people who shaped the city and the background behind iconic streets and structures that have appeared as a result over the past 150 years.
