Cowboys & Homesteaders is the second volume in the series THE VROOMS OF THE FOOTHILLS by Bessie Vroom Ellis. This social history tells the fascinating story of the 1885-1914 era when cowboys, settlers and homesteaders poured into western Canada. Illustrated with over 220 photographs and 7 original maps, the stories resonate with the memories of immigrants who came to southwestern Alberta, looking for a better way of life for themselves and their families.
