The Geography of Manitoba, a wide-ranging look at Canada's Keystone Province, comprises a collection of papers grouped into four sections dealing with the province's physical geography, people, resources and industries, and recreation. Supplementing the major essays are brief case studies (thirty-nine in all) that examine specific topics related to the sections within which they appear. The text is amply supported throughout by excellent black-and-white maps, as well as by illustrations, photographs, tables, and several color plates.
