The author writes of his life in Saskatchewan in the early part of the twentieth century, telling "of the good years; the happy and the boom years between 1904 and 1913 when hopeful immigrants were pouring into the West by the hundreds of thousands, when crops were bountiful, money was plentiful and credit was easy; a time of optimism when anything seemed possible; when many farmers spent their winters in California or visited the old folks in England; when it was believed that Winnipeg would soon rival Chicago and Moose Jaw would equal Minneapolis." This copy signed by Macintyre, beneath his name on title page. Brown cloth w/gilt spine lettering, 101 pages. Light wear to corners/spine ends, gift inscription to previous owner on reverse of half-title, previous owner's name stamp on fore-edge, tanning, light general wear, in rubbed dust jacket w/impressions, moderate edgewear.
