Todd, Manager, East Kildonan/Transcona, Community Parks & Recreation: ""Through the resources and joint co-operation of the East Kildonan-Transcona Parks & Recreation Branch, local citizens, organizations and community groups, it gives me great pleasure to present this publication. Within the limits of existing resources, the publication will attempt to present varied aspects of local history. From the early 1800's to its present day, the publication is designed as an informative booklet of general history significant to our community. It is our desire to contribute to making our residents, visitors, and general public aware of local history and the importance it played in the development of Greater Winnipeg. We wish to acknowledge the late Miss Margaret Kennedy, a long-time resident of the community, through whose inspiration this publication evolved and in her memory we dedicate this book. A special thanks to the sub-committee on Parks & Recreation of the East Kildonan-transcona Community Committee who authorized the funding in support of the project and to Jim Park who co-authored, researched and made this publication a reality.""

And throughout its long history, few have been unaffected by its beauty and its treachery. The beautifully illustrated book begins with the geology of Manitoba's great lake and traces its fascinating history through the lives and legends of its people, from the first humans to see its enormous glacial ancestor to the thousands who vacation about its shores every year. Edited by Barbara Huck, this is a collective work with contributions to editorial assistance from The Manitoba Archaeological Society, Harry St. C. Hilchey, Phil Manaigre, Jerry Zastre, Erik Nielsen, Clifford Stevens, Gerald Friesen, David Arnason, Peter St. John, Doug Whiteway, Jens and Barbara Nielsen, Dennis Peristy, and Donna Parisien Guiboche.
