This book not only highlights the "big" events in Alberta but also introduces the reader to local gems and secret sights that only the locals know about. Slim but stuffed with great destinations, I recommend this to everyone from tourists to the tourist-in-your-own-hometown.

This is a pretty generic list of tourist sites and barely touches on the Alberta of an insider. Things like tipi rings at Carmangay or medicine wheels at a variety of sites are not mentioned. The Red Deer River or the Upper Oldman or Grande Cache for white water rafting gets nary a mention. The book reads like someone lifted it straight out of Alberta tourism brochures and we all know they are only shills for hotels and big malls.
2 thumbs down!
