Coming Home: Saskatchewan Remembered - by Ron Evans (University of Toronto Press)
The stories in Coming Home are as surprising as the landscape of Saskatchewan itself and as varied as its weather. Through the author’s reminiscences, we experience prairie life as it was more than sixty years ago, and as it is today. A rich cast of characters appears — neighbours, drunks, misfits — all with a place in the story. These are the tales of a father who lived hard, failed often, and was loved much, of a mother who was an artist at heart but became a teacher and farmer’s wife through circumstance.
