"This collection of unusually powerful stories opens up a refreshing new chapter in Canadian history. Since there are so few written records of the lives of frontier women, Dr. Silverman collected 'memories'; the result has the hypnotic appeal of all genuine storytelling. It extends our understanding of Canadian heritage by weaving 'a collective autobiography' of the women who were the earliest settlers in Alberta, the site of the final North American land rush. The true story of how these women created a society from a harsh frontier is heartwarming and inspiring." -- Publisher.
