Dr. Bill Waiser: A World We Have Lost.
The Prairie History Room/Regina Public Library is pleased to present Dr. Bill Waiser reading from his Governor General’s Award winning A World We Have Lost: Saskatchewan Before 1905. Dr. Waiser’s book examines the early history of Saskatchewan through an Aboriginal and environmental lens, with Indian and mixed-descent peoples playing leading roles in the story-as does the land and climate. By the early nineteenth century, a distinctive western society had emerged in the North-West-one that was challenged and undermined by the takeover of the region by a young dominion of Canada. By the time Saskatchewan entered confederation as a province in 1905, the world that explorer Henry Kelsey had encountered in 1690 had become a world we have lost. Everyone welcome.
