About this book

Edmonton on Location: River City Chronicles is an innovative collection of essays, memoirs, poems, and stories by acclaimed Edmontonians. These Edmontonians represent a cross-section of society, spanning generations, occupations, and lifestyles that have helped to make Edmonton unique. Edmonton On Location describes the heartbeat of this vibrant city, from parks and back alleys to the High Level Bridge and North Saskatchewan River. Rediscover the familiar and not-so-familiar landmarks, such as the Hotel Macdonald and Kindred House, through the vivid descriptions, fresh observations, and humorous musings of these talented writers.

This thought-provoking collection, edited by Heather Zwicker, with a foreword by former Edmonton City Councillor Michael Phair, explores history in an imaginative way. It will give you an entirely new perspective on the meaningful spaces and monuments that make up Edmonton.
