Once a little fort on the prairie, Edmonton is Alberta's vibrant capital city, notable for its extensive river valley park system and notorious for its expansive mall. Behind these familiar local features are secrets that will surprise even long-time residents.

Edmonton: Secrets of the City is a city guide with a twist, with the inside scoop on the best places to dine, shop, and hang out, along with the obscure, trivial, and even macabre stories behind local legends and landmarks. At some time or another, the River City has seen it all, from hometown celebrities like Leslie Nielsen and Paul Gross, to homegrown oddities like traffic circles and crop circles, to ghosts that go bump and clop-clop in the night. Call it a Klondike city, a City of Champions, or a City of Festivals, Edmonton is as eclectic as its bizarre, unpredictable weather. Like a visit to the Legislature to view Purple City, Edmonton: Secrets of the City will forever change the cityscape for both visitors and locals.

Two-colour throughout, Edmonton: Secrets of the City includes numerous contemporary and historical photographs.
