A Calgary Album

The Last Dream (New Edition): Dreams and Destiny

This is basically a combination of fiction and non-fiction. Some of the instances, places, and people exist in real life and some doesn’t. It’s an act to bring something new to the readers. It’s a short novel divided into two parts where in part 1 you can see how beautiful can life be and in part 2 you can actually feel the pain, twists and turns…

Nurtured by a sense of vision and the sweat of good old-fashioned hard work, Calgary grew, and has now blossomed into a world-class cosmopolitan city noted for its burgeoning oil and gas industry, its famed Calgary Zoo, and of course, the Stampede. A Calgary Album is a sentimental journey into a cattle town that grew to be so much more. Through sixty-five glorious black and white photographs and engaging storytelling, the authors take the reader back to the time of the "real" cowboys, to the days when the streetcar seemed like science fiction, through the Depression, the great wars, the times of boom, bust, and recovery. We revisit the movers, the shakers, and the honourable everyday people who turned this "cow town" into a city worth bragging about.
