#1 in a Trilogy of Historical Novels

A family leaves Eastern Canada gambling everything on a new life in the West. Instead of waving wheatfields they encounter drought and misfortune.

Black blizzards, hail storms, and new babies born every year don't discourage this prairie family. They accept every misfortune as a challenge and every change in their circumstances as an adventure.    
     
Excerpt
