In Flanders Fieldsby Linda Granfield
Synopses & Reviews
A young boy has lost his father, a soldier killed in action overseas. He and his mother travel the stretch of Highway 401 between Trenton and Toronto, called the Highway of Heroes, marking the route of fallen soldiers who return to Canada. This photographic picture book pays tribute to the sacrifices of those Canadian men and women in our armed forces and their families, while highlighting the remarkable patriotism of Canadian citizens who honour them.
Canadian Library Association Honour Book The lines of the celebrated poem are interwoven with fascinating information about the First World War, details of daily life in the trenches, accounts of McCrae's experience in his field hospital, and the circumstances that led to the writing of In Flanders Fields.
John McCrae's 'In Flanders Fields', written from the terrible trenches of Ypres in 1915, is interwoven with fascinating information about the First World War, details of daily life in the trenches, and a description of the tragic circumstances that led to the writing of the poem. Janet Wilson's evocative paintings provide a stunning visual interpretation of the work.
In Flanders Field is one of the most popular poems ever written. Its underlying message of respect for the fallen and the longing for peace has touched the hearts of millions of people around the world. This is the story of the poem, its creator, and the soldiers who inspired it.
