A website, entitled, Mavericks: An Incorrigible History of Alberta, has recently been set up by the Glenbow Museum in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, in partnership with the Calgary Board of Education Innovative Learning Services and the University of Calgary Learning Commons, and with the financial support of the Department of Canadian Heritage through Canadian Culture Online. 

The website is based upon the book Mavericks: An Incorrigible History of Alberta by Calgary based writer and historian Aritha van Herk. The premise of the book and the website is that Alberta was shaped by Mavericks – men and women who were adventurous, hard-working, and spirited.

The website invites us to discover Alberta’s history through their stories. In 2007, the Glenbow museum will open a new permanent gallery on Alberta's history using the same title as the book.
