Saskatchewan, at the heart of Canada’s wheat belt and is home to the Big Muddy Badlands. It was the last resting place of Sitting Bull fter his defeat by General Custer at the battle of the Little Big Horn. In the south the town of Moose Jaw is nicknamed 'Little Chicago' from the days of Al Capone’s booze running. The origin of the name 'Saskatchewan' is the subject of some debate. Some think it comes from a Cree word for 'swift-flowing river' ( Kisisskatchewan). That would be apt, because the province has close to 100,000 lakes and rivers. Although Saskatchewan is commonly thought of as consisting mainly of vast prairies, the landscape is quite varied.
