THE HOMESTEADE­RS

-

By San­dra Rollings-Mag­nus­son, fore­word by Na­dine Chara­bin

Sto­ries of pi­o­neers of­ten evoke im­ages of ro­mance and hard­ship. Set­tlers came to the prairies from all over the world seek­ing democ­racy and equal­ity. But what they en­dured — ar­du­ous voy­ages, back-break­ing labour, homes built from sod, and the mis­ery of pests, cy­clones, and fires — made them a spe­cial kind of peo­ple.
