Except for three pages of text, this is a collection of captioned photographs of various aspects of Saskatchewan: the land, the buildings, the people, and their activities. The photographs are generally of very good quality and are well chosen to give the viewer a very brief glimpse of the province. The reproduction is also very good, although there are a few pictures that lack the crispness and charity of the others. Probably produced for the tourist souvenir market, this is interesting browsing material suitable for any age level and as such is a worthwhile item. As far as its use in school libraries is concerned, I would recommend it where there is demand for a collection of pictures of Saskatchewan; it is nice to look at!
