From 1971 to 1979 I listened to my father-in-law tell his tales that spoke of his history in a village in the Carpathian region of the Ukraine and Poland. His stories became an oral history that I recorded in the last five years of his life. This book tells the tale of his father and himself until 1928 when conditions in the Ukraine forced him to flee to a new country.

Not long after his arrival on the Canadian prairies, he married another Ukrainian who had been born in a different village in the Ukraine. This story ends with that marriage though his story continued for another fifty years as a pioneer farmer raising fourteen children. Today that family has grown and prospered as those children became parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents. This book was originally written for them.

This could be the story of most immigrants that came to Canada.
