    A bit disappointed in this book particularly in the last two chapters It starts out well enough and although it’s certainly not a gripping read by any stretch of the imagination it’s at least informative for the most part However in the last two chapters there’s uite a bit of repetition from one chapter to the next The second last chapter which deals with the Nakoda natives in the Cypress Hills goes on at great length about how the Canadian government continually broke promises and lied to get them out of the Cypress Hills after they seemingly settled there on reserves and successfully demonstrated an ability to subsist on agriculture However nowhere in that chapter does it ever explain WHY nor does it even postulate a theory as to why this was done why one report would say they’re successful which would then be contradicted by another report sent to Ottawa about their status The book finally does touch on that in the next chapter the book’s final chapter but only after repeating uite a bit of the material already covered in the previous chapter Perhaps this was the result of two authors working on the book at the same time and writing different chapters A good editor would’ve caught that in my opinion thoughThe book does end rather abruptly as well without any kind of real summarization As I wrote it’s informative for the most part but not entertaining and really could be written much better

    I found this brief history of the Cypress Hills obviously enough in a gift shop while staying there this summer I'm fascinated by this area of the country and though I grew up near it there was much in Hildebrandt and Hubner's book particularly the exodus of Native groups from the area that I did not know A very well researched and approachable history with many references to further readings one can do in a large subject area Recommended for anyone with interest in Canadian history environment or provincial and national parks
