A century and a quarter ago, Regina was literally a "Pile O' Bones" and Moose Jaw nothing but a fur traders' camp. Today Regina is Saskatchewan's thriving capital, and Moose Jaw is the province's fourth largest city. Now you can stroll through both cities' sometimes turbulent, sometimes triumphant histories with Historic Walks of Regina and Moose Jaw.

Edward Willett, a Regina writer with a keen interest in history and architecture, points out the buildings and historic sites that have played an important role in the development of these sister cities. You'll get a feel for the way the cities looked in the past, and learn how they've developed into what they are today.

Brimming with historical and architectural information and fascinating anecdotes, and illustrated with dozens of photographs, Historic Walks of Regina and Moose Jaw is an indispensable guide to Saskatchewan's capital and its nearest urban neighbour. So lace up your walking shoes, and take ten historic walks into the rich history of Saskatchewan.

Kudos to Willett who recognized those of us living in a concrete jungle appreciate the craftsmanship of the stone masons and bricklayers who left a lasting legacy." 
-- Regina Leader Post
