About the Author

Robert Collins, grew up in rural Saskatchewan during the Depression in conditions described in his renowned best-seller Butter Down the Well. After serving in Europe with the RCAF during the war (an experience described in The Long and the Short and the Tall), he returned to Canada to attend university and help produce the baby boom generation. Later, as a writer for Macleans, the Star Weekly, and Toronto Life, he chronicled the goings-on in the suburbia of the 1950s and the upheaval of the turbulent 1960s. Subsequently, he travelled the country writing major articles for Readers Digest. Collins, who lives in Toronto, now concentrates on books. This is his fourteenth.
