A Prairie Marsh and its People
About this Item
Delta Marsh History Group
Delta: A Prairie Marsh and Its People is a story of history and conservation. Delta, on the south shore of Lake Manitoba, has attracted people for millennia. It was one of Manitoba’s earliest cottage areas and a popular destination for generations of waterfowl hunters. This richly illustrated, full-colour book presents the stories of the many people -- Aboriginal peoples, farmers, cottagers, hunters, artists, scientists, and more -- who have lived, worked, and played at Delta through the years.
Glen Suggett is a wildlife manager for the Manitoba government. Gordon Goldsborough is a biologist at the University of Manitoba. Both have spent much of their lives at Delta Marsh.
