The authors of this extraordinary book are all experts on Alberta, its history, its spirit, its variety, its character, the land and the people. Unlike other books celebrating the province of Alberta on its hundredth anniversary in Confederation, this one is forward looking. It is a book not only about the past but about Alberta rising.Alberta: A State of Mind is a collaboration of more than 25 Albertan writers, decision makers, and bestselling authors and editors. They include holders of the Order of Canada as well as many other distinguished and provocative thinkers.This book provides readers with a vehicle to discover and debate who Albertans are, where theyve been and where they are going. It offers an opportunity to understand Albertas unique political leadership and bold economic choices.The editors say: We want people to read this book and say thats what were about.We want other Canadians to read and say, now I understand them. The Alberta spirit springs from a well of independence and self-sufficiency. We are part of Canada but we are also very much ourselves.
