Editorial Reviews

Review

"This tale draws its grace from the fine, detailed portrait of immigrants making their way in a new world." (Kirkus Reviews 2011-04-01)

"Dueck weaves information about prairie settlers in the early 1900s into vivid scenes of trapping, fishing, and working on the farm...Erik's and Olaf's personal situations and their ambivalence toward each other are well drawn and subtly contrasted. This Canadian novel dovetails neatly with American stories of pioneer life on the prairies." (Booklist 2011-04-15)

"Gives a good picture of what it was like living on the Prairies in the early 20th century...It may come as a shock to some young people whose parents do so much for them, that in earlier times children did so much for their parents." (Resource Links 2011-06-01)

"A fascinating work of historical fiction...Dueck creates prose that effectively captures the complex beauty and lurking danger of the seemingly flat and barren prairie. The real story is in the extraordinary fine details of the human experience of settling on the prairie...Erik is a well-rounded and believable focal character who invites the readers to recognize that the settler's hardships and ways of living were not what many of them were accustomed to...Life as a settler on the prairies is full of work and activity, and Dueck's plot mirrors this pace in a way that balances the rich descriptions of the land without bogging down the novel. Readers will be drawn into the story by the characters and kept there by the powerful history of life on the prairies. Highly Recommended." (CM Magazine 2011-11-18)

"This book would well support the study of pioneer life on the prairies, immigration to Canada, and many other areas of the Social Studies curriculum at multiple grade levels." (Canadian Teacher 2011-11-01)
