Here's good reading for those who enjoy Mary Kidder Rak and other authors of that ilk, who tell in an interesting way of their personal experiences of frontier farming. This manuscript won the $1000 non-fiction prize in a contest sponsored jointly by Dodge and the Canadian Authors' Club. Mrs. Strange was thrust, unprepared, into hard farm life on a Canadian ranch, with a background of London, gentle upbringing, a bit of the rough with the smooth in her war experiences, but with no training for hard labor and domestic slavery on an ill-equipped, rough frontier farm. But the fight challenged her -- and she made good. Her account of the experience is stimulating.
