Before the dust of the "dirty thirties" settled across the prairies, Alberta celebrated successes of some home-town heroes. Travel back in time with author, Lois Donovan, to the very British Alberta of 1929 as "Wop" May, famous WWI flying ace, and Emily Murphy, first female magistrate, are making their marks on Canadian history. What can we learn from our heroes and what messages do we want to pass on to our youth? A window into Alberta history, this session provides insightful fare for class critical thinking discussions and debates.
