In the Footsteps of Giants Volume 1: Events and Personalities From Calgary's Early History For Young Readers

Experience Calgary’s exciting early history! Can you imagine a woolly mammoth walking off Nose Hill, down what is now 14th Street, to the Bow River? Can you believe that beavers as large as a black bear may have been swimming in the river when the woolly mammoth arrived?

Find out what happened when an airplane landed on top of the carousel at the Calgary Exhibition in 1919. Where did that pilot learn to fly?

Learn about some of Calgary’s first schools. Which school was the first to have electricity and running water?

This book presents events and personalities from Calgary’s early history and is written for young readers.
Published by the Chinook Country Historical Society, it is intended for school children in Grades 4 to 6.
