Updated 2018/02/26



In ‘Fernie at War’ Wayne R. Norton examines how the residents of Fernie entered the First World War full of national pride, only to realize“staggering losses and multiple controversies that threatened to tear their community apart.”


‘The Man & The Bear’ is a delightful and brightly illustrated book by Cranbrook author Jody Jacob.
