van Herk is a literary professor attempting to be an historian. With her frequent use of figurative language one cannot be entirely certain that she is speaking fact or just being hyperbolic. Nor does she make any effort to remain unbiased, commenting on even the images used in her books according to her own prejudices while frequently reminding readers that the primary sources she is quoting are biased. All in all, van Herk's writing can be summarized by one of the personal anecdotes she felt compelled to start each chapter. In the anecdote van Herk describes the farm where she was raised and how as a child she thought it held the tallest tree in the world; when a boy pointed out the tree next to it was larger van Herk records, "He was right. And I hated him. For I had given this tree meaning and magic, made it a shrine in my universe, my wilderness, my territory" (110). Unwilling to filter her own biases, prides, and disappointments about the province she is supposed to be recording a history of, one begins to wonder if this recollection of Alberta is another "tallest tree" she is unwilling to be disillusioned about. quite long and got a little slow moving. but very interesting history of alberta. should be a school text book for albertans
