Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the late 1800s, Canadas prairies were the destination for thousands of settlers. Among them were the Caswells, who made the long journey from a comfortable home in Ontario. Before fourteen-year-old Maryanne departs from her hometown of Palmerston in 1887, she promises to write to her grandmother about her journey to Clarks Crossing, near the present day city of Saskatoon.

In these fascinating, true letters, Maryanne writes vividly about the fun of the train ride and the near impossible trek across muddy cart tracks with the familys laden wagon. As the oldest, Maryanne helps with many of the back-breaking and never-ending chores in the fields and at the homestead. Tales of courage, adventure, loneliness, sorrow, and delight flow from Maryannes pen. This is a powerful testament from an astute and sensitive young girl.

About the Author

Maryanne Caswells grandmother kept all their correspondence and returned the letters to her granddaughter when Maryanne married Thomas Hilliard. The letters were first published in the Saskatoon Star-Phoenix newspaper in 1952 near the time of Maryannes death.
