This new Creative Non-Fiction follows 'Mewassin: The Good Land' and the Lenny/Perrault/Ross families through the Depression, World War Two and into the triumphs of the post-war boom as the surrendering land holds out its Homesteads to a new kind of gambler. Caroline and her daughter, Mary, are caught up in the rush to claim this land beside the men they love. These are real people in Canada's Northwest, following the generation before them as they chase their dreams. Just as there are many struggles in settling these homesteads, there are also many romantic, funny and amazing incidents that will make the reader realize that many varied and unusual characters take their places in this new land.
