In this beautifully written and powerful book, Douglas Unger tells the story of his family's journey from the rural prairies of Saskatchewan to the urban sprawl of Vancouver. Unger describes the challenges and joys of raising a family in a new place, and the ways in which the landscape and culture of each place has shaped his family. Unger's story is a testament to the resilience and power of family, and an inspiring look at the ways that migration can open up new opportunities and create new connections.; 8vo; 277 pages.
