A history of the pottery industry in Alberta, which began around the turn of the century in Medicine Hat, where clay deposits and natural gas were abundant. This is a dramatic story of temperamental entrepreneurs who were fierce rivals and who had fires, world wars, a depression, high freight rates and cheap imports to contend with.
