display_description"Pulitzer Prize-winning author Wallace Stegner's boyhood was spent on the beautiful and remote frontier of the Cypress Hills in southern Saskatchewan, where his family homesteaded from 1914 to 1920. In a recollection of his years there, Stegner applied childhood remembrances and adult reflection to the history of the region to create this wise and enduring portrait of a pioneer community existing on the verge of a modern world."--Jacket.
