Belongs to the canon of prairie literature
on April 23, 2017
This, along with a few other novels like Grain (Robert Stead), Wild Geese Martha Olenso) and Settlers of the Marsh (Philip Grove) is one of the seminal novels of early twentieth century Canadian prairie writing. A must-read if you want to understand the Depression era prairies. Best avoided if you're feeling a tad depressed yourself!
