A History in Words and Pictures
Amy Jo Ehman
In 1899, Saskatoon was little more than a few wooden houses and false-fronted shops. There were no bridges, no railways, not even an elevator rising above the rooftops. There was no reason to think Saskatoon would be more successful in the long run than any other prairie town. Saskatoon not only survived, it thrived. Saskatoon tells the story of the dreams and determination of the people who built a dynamic City of Bridges on the South Saskatchewan.
Amy Jo Ehman was born in Saskatoon and grew up on the family farm 150 kms away from there. Her first art gallery, first train ride, first perogie, and first picnic were in Saskatoon. She studied at the University of Saskatchewan and worked as a news reporter at the Saskatoon Star-Phoenix and CBC Radio & TV. She has two previous books, Prairie Feast: A Writer's Journey Home for Dinner and Out of Old Saskatchewan Kitchens. Amy Jo lives in Saskatoon. Amy Jo loves Saskatoon.
