Thesis
Abstract
The aim of this thesis is to undertake a comprehensive dendroarchaeological-contextual investigation of 35 sites (44 log structures) in Jasper, Banff, and Kootenay National Parks. Through tree-ring analysis and investigations of relevant documents (i.e., archives and interviews), three main objectives are met: (1) an architectural inventory and tree-ring analysis of sampled structures in the three parks; (2) an exploration of remote construction activity in the three parks, in terms of functional, temporal, and spatial distributions, and tree species selection; and (3) a detailed dendroarchaeological-contextual investigation of three structure case studies. The results provide new insights into remote construction activity from the late-nineteenth to early-twentieth century in the three parks. It assists Parks Canada in their attempt to interpret the cultural heritage resources of this area and contributes to the international need to document and explore vernacular architecture.

Abstract
Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump in Alberta is one of the oldest, largest, and best-preserved buffalo jump sites in North America and was declared a World Heritage Site in 1981. Author Gordon Reid has compiled a history of this significant site, describing the importance of the buffalo to Native peoples, how the jump was used, and the traditions and skills surrounding the hunt. He also looks at the excavation of the site, explaining how archaeologists uncovered artifacts, and what they learned about the history of the site and the people who used it. Also included is an overview of the resources offered by the Head Smashed-In Buffalo Jump interpretive centre. This book, originally published in 1993, has been a very popular resource for tourists, educators, students, and people interested in Alberta's heritage. Completely updated and redesigned for this new edition, it will be the only book available that explains, in depth, the vital role of Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump in Native history.

Abstract
A collection of articles that examine many of the struggles that Aboriginal women have faced, and continue to face, in Canada. Sections include: Profiles of Aboriginal Women; Identity; Territory; Activism; Confronting Colonialism; the Canadian Legal System; and Indigenous Knowledges. Photographs and poetry are also included. There are few books on Aboriginal women in Canada; this anthology provides a valuable addition to the literature and fills a critical gap in the fields of Native Studies, Cultural Studies and Women’s Studies.

Abstract
Growing populations, increasing industrial use and heavy agricultural demand are beginning to tax water supplies in many regions of Canada. Since many rivers are already fully allocated to numerous uses, future economic and social development will depend upon how much we know about our surface and ground water resources and how effectively we manage them—especially in the face of climate change. The message to take home from this eloquent book is that it is time to dispel the myth of limitless abundance of water in Canada and throughout North America. We all need to be mindful that though our technologically sophisticated society is largely fuelled and lubricated by refined petroleum, it ultimately runs on plain water. In his conclusion to this authoritative book, Robert Sandford, chair of Canada’s United Nations Water for Life Decade, offers a realistic picture of the various issues and threats related to the future availability and quality of fresh water in Canada. (from Rocky Mountain Books website)

Abstract
Canada 1931: The unsociable trapper Johnson lives for himself in the ice-cold mountains near the Yukon river. During a visit in the town he witnesses a dog-fight. He interrupts the game and buys one of the dogs - almost dead already - for $200 against the owner's will. When the owner Hasel complains to Mountie Sergeant Millen, he refuses to take action. But then the loathing breeder and his friends accuse Johnson of murder. So Millen, although sympathetic, has to try to take him under arrest - but Johnson defends his freedom in every way possible.

Abstract
In 1910, Bill, a Chicago steel worker accidentally kills his supervisor. He flees to the Texas panhandle with his lover Abby and his little sister Linda, where they work harvesting wheat in the fields of a stoic farmer. When Bill learns that the farmer is ill and has less than a year to live, he encourages Abby to accept the man's attentions. The Farmer and Abby marry, and she and her "siblings" live in the big house, waiting for the Farmer to die, so Abby can inherit, and the three of them live happily ever after. But love seems to be a cure-all: the Farmer seems to be improving--and Abby is no longer seeing this as a marriage of convenience. From a landscape of panoramic vistas, vivid colors, and rich textures comes a timeless American idyll and a gritty evocation of turn-of-the-century labor.

Abstract
In this wild comedy adventure, rail passenger George Caldwell (Gene Wilder) finds that a romantic escapade with a sultry secretary (Jill Clayburgh) puts him in the middle of a Hitchcockian murder plot. Leaping on and off the train, in and out of roomettes, bars, and dining cars, George teams up with an amiable small-time crook (Richard Pryor) to defy the murder's henchmen, FBI agents and a host of other outrageous characters (from back of DVD)

Abstract
This paper examines the life of William Twin (c. 1860–1940), a member of the Nakoda (or Stoney) First Nation, and pays particular attention to his connection with Banff National Park and role in facilitating the tourism empire that still flourishes there. Being careful to distinguish between who William Twin was and how he was imagined to be, this paper argues that his life story has at least two aspects: William as an ‘institution’ useful to the development of Banff National Park, and William as a person who enjoyed sustained and very personal interactions with both Stoney and Euro-Canadian communities (abstract)
