Edited by Bernard D. Thraves, Marilyn Lewry, Janis E. Dale, and Hansgeorg Schlichtmann, Saskatchewan: Geographic Perspectives is a compilation of articles by researchers across the province and beyond. The 480-page book, published by the Canadian Plains Research Center, includes more than 150 figures (maps, charts, illustrations, and photographs), 70 tables, and over 60 full-colour plates.
“When we were first planning the book, Saskatchewan’s centennial was fast approaching,” say editors Lewry and Thraves. “We realized that a comprehensive statement of the province’s diverse physical and human environment was missing from the geographic literature. The book attempts to fill that gap, and by drawing on the expertise of geographers from Saskatchewan and beyond, offers insight into the province’s geography for both students and general readers.”
“In Saskatchewan: Geographic Perspectives, the special nature of the place and its people are captured through careful and detailed research by noted scholars and presented in a highly accessible form reaching out to students, other researchers and the general public,” says David Gauthier, the U of R’s Vice President of Research & International. “The University of Regina is proud of its scholars in the Department of Geography who led this project from concept to completion.”
