Soon he became Western Canadas best-loved historian, author of the classic popular histories Booze, The Winter Years and Red Lights on the Prairies.This book takes us from the depths of the Depression to the heady days of the post-war boom in the Fifties. Gray had a knack for being in the right place at the right time: covering the Turner Valley oil discoveries in 1936-7, the battle by women to get into the armed forces in 1940, and the influx of American oilmen into Albertas oil and gas industry after the war.With his dislike of hypocrisy, and his compassion for people of all kinds, Gray is a fine and honest reporter. The same qualities make Troublemaker a fine and honest book.
