BOOK - A Short History of Saskatchewan
By Dr. Ed Whitcomb.

This history provides the general reader with an accurate summary of the province's development from prehistoric to modern times, including the broad outline of major developments such as exploration, settlement, economic growth, and social and political development. Relations with the federal government are explained from the province's point of view. The book has been checked for accuracy, balance and readability by over half a dozen professional Canadian historians, editors, analysts and general readers.

A Short History of Saskatchewan mentions in particular the North-West Rebellion, the achievement and limitations on provincial status in 1905, the way government handled successfully the problems facing a one-crop economy, the devastation of the Depression, the achievements of Canada's first socialist government, the introduction of Medicare, and the struggle to diversify the economy.
