Alberta was, and continues to be, shaped by mavericks - adventurous, hard-working and spirited men and women. The Mavericks gallery will invite you to explore our province's history through the dynamic stories of over 40 mavericks from Western Canada's past.<br><br>"Mavericks: An Incorrigible History of Alberta" is based on the award-winning book of the same title by Calgary-based author Aritha van Herk. This new 30,000 square foot permanent gallery will replace the third floor southern Alberta history galleries and will consist of eleven new galleries each covering an area of Alberta's history including the fur trade, the North West Mounted Police, the railroads, ranching, politics, oil and gas and immigration. <p>Source: Glenbow Museum
