Donald and Sadie emigrated west from Prince Edward Island in Eastern Canada and spent nearly four years on the Alberta prairies, where they gambled everything on raising wheat. Between dust storms, hail, prairie fires, blizzards, and a difficult landlady, the family was finally beaten into submission. Loading their few possessions, they moved north in a railroad boxcar to the bushland to face new challenges. Meanwhile the family is growing. By the time they reach the northern bush country, they have eight children.
This extraordinary story of courage comes from the memoirs of these children as they grew up. The people they met and the conditions they endured made living in the North memorable, heartbreaking, and sometimes frightening, but there are also tender and humorous moments. This is the second book in a trilogy following The Gentle Gamblers.
“Your readers share the family’s sorrows, its laughter and tears. It serves as a reminder of how much we owe these brave pioneers. An excellent well-written narrative.” – Eric Brown, Magnolia Press

About the Author: Lillian (MacIntosh) Ross was the 14th of 15 children born to Donald and Sadie MacIntosh. She earned her bachelor’s in education at the University of Alberta in Edmonton. Literature courses taken there inspired her to become an author. However, it was not until she retired from teaching, married Reg Ross from the oilfields, and raised two sons, Lonnie and Erin, that she finally made her trilogy of historical novels of pioneer adventure a reality. She has written six other books.
