Indian Head, History of Indian Head and District.

Seller ID: 1722

Indian Head (Saskatchewan): W. D. Schafer, 1984. First edition (pp. x, 798). Large quarto (28 cm) in decorative black publisher's cloth, gilt titles and decorations to cover and spine, pictorial dust wrapper (short tears and nibbles, repaired), pictorial epp. A comprehensive local history and genealogy of the southeastern Saskatchewan town from its beginnings in the 1880's including just about everything that ever happened in education, agriculture, religion, community affairs, foreign wars, and sports; every club, lodge, association, circle, and committee. An admirable community effort to produce a local history. More than five hundred pages of family histories, largely self-narrated and often with pictures, embracing just about everybody who ever lived in Indian Head (and probably some who were just passing through). Many photographs of families and businesses, including, for example, Frank Smith and friend perched atop Smiths [sic] Bakery Float (p. 628). While a number of local survey maps are included, just where the town is located in Saskatchewan isn't mentioned nor is there a map showing its location on the Canadian prairies. Perhaps that's because the writers already knew where they were. A fine copy in a very good dust wrapper.
