'Enchanting, heartrending and eminently enviable' Vladimir Nabokov
Pulitzer Prize-winning author Wallace Stegner's boyhood was spent on the beautiful and remote frontier of the Cypress Hills in southern Saskatchewan, where his family homesteaded fro 1914 to 1920. In a recollection of his years there, Stegner applies childhood remembrances and adult reflection to the history of the region to create this wise and enduring portrait of pioneer community existing in the verge of a modern world.
'Stegner has summarized the frontier story and interpreted it as only one who was part of it could' The New York Times Book Review
