About the Book
Robin had no idea that a trip to Rutherford House with her grandma would lead to an adventure with a time-travelling moose! Come with Robin and Rutherford as they journey through Edmonton’s history, from the ice age to the present day, and discover how our city has changed through time. This 32-page adventure visits such sites as Rutherford House, the Alberta Legislature, Strathcona Library, Princess Theatre, the High Level Bridge and Garneau Theatre.
