The Calgary Stampede has been a keystone of Albertan culture for over a century, and The Rangeland Derby delves into the history of its famous chuckwagon races. With numerous stories and facts, Mikkelsen paints a vivid picture of the event and its role in the rodeo community throughout the decades. To complement the textual descriptions, the book includes several archival photographs that will engage all levels of readers. The chapters easily form discrete sections that could be used in social studies lessons. The book provides a good example of how to integrate archival photos and news articles; however, educators will need to supplement the lesson with examples of citations.
