Of This Earth: A Mennonite Boyhood in the Boreal Forest - Rudy Wiebe

Of This Earth: A Mennonite Boyhood in the Boreal Forest

Rudy Wiebe

  • 1595


The author grew up, through age 12, with his immigrant family as they cut a farm out of stony bushland in remote Saskatchewan. They hand-dug their well, climbed a ladder to their beds under the rafters, farmed with horses, and traveled by sleigh on the frontier. Stories and singing and food from their native Ukraine and Poland held them together and filled their bodies and souls. This is a haunting book that will stay with you. (393pp. illus. Good Books, 2007.)
