(Roche, W. J., Minister of the Interior)
40pp, illus, maps. Original decorative wrappers. Minor soil, very slight dampstain to one corner, else very good. An elaborate promotional obviously designed to attract settlers from the United States to the prairie provinces of Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and Alberta. Rather more sober and factual than the usual run of these things, it is full of statistics and helpful hints although not above several pages of testimonial letters from successful farmers. There are large (19 by 15 inches) fold out maps of the three provinces plus a double page map of British Columbia (The 'California' of Canada") and a color map of Canada on the back cover.
