Local Culture and Diversity on the Prairies

In comparison with other regions in Canada, the prairies were populated relatively recently. Their settlement in the first half of the twentieth century remains a part of "living memory" for people who are now in their seventies and eighties. By including the vivid recollections that some informants have of their parents' stories, it is possible to extend "living memory" as far back as 1900.
